MANAGING AND PROTECTING KEY NATURAL AND CULTURAL ASSETS
The NT is known for its magnificent natural landscapes, seascapes and deeply significant cultural values. TNRM supports the cooperative management of sites of natural and cultural significance.
TERRITORY CONSERVATION AGREEMENTS
TNRM’s Territory Conservation Agreements (TCAs) support land managers to protect areas of conservation importance on their properties. TCAs are ten-year voluntary agreements between TNRM and the land manager.
The first agreement was signed in September 2011 and since then more than 30 TCAs have been established. Collectively, these sites encompass more than 39,000 hectares of ecologically significant habitat, including wetlands and rivers, escarpment country and woodland.
COASTAL REHABILITATION WORK AT TREE POINT
Tree Point, located north of Darwin, is a coastal habitat restoration project being run by the Larrakia Rangers. This TNRM funded project aimed to restore a section of coastal monsoon forest as part of a broader management strategy for the coastal habitat of the greater Darwin region.
Over the last three years, this project has far exceeded its initial modest targets of clearing a small section of the invasive weed poinciana.
