Cradle Coast Natural Resource Management (NRM) is a not-for-profit organisation that works with North West Tasmanian communities to improve natural resources such as land, water and coasts to ensure a healthy future for the region. Cradle Coast NRM supports community and industry projects, facilitates funding and coordinates natural resource activities and information sharing in the region.
Cradle Coast NRM provides information, resources, technical and networking support to landholders, local government, community groups, schools and others working to improve land, air and water quality in their community.
Caring for our Coasts
The Cradle Coast is bounded by 2,640km of coastline. Cradle Coast NRM works with local councils, schools and
community groups to reduce coastal erosion through native revegetation; monitor shorebirds and penguins; control coastal weeds and provide support for local Coastcare groups.
Sharing Sustainable Farm Practices
From reducing erosion with the ripper mulcher to running field days and connecting people to agricultural services
in the region, Cradle Coast NRM provides practical advice and support to small and large landholders, farmer groups and industry.
Working with Community Groups
Cradle Coast NRM Community Facilitators support community groups in a wide variety of ways. For example, they organise forums on the implications of climate change, run youth education programs, support tree planting days and provide advice to local Coastcare, Landcare and ‘Friends of’ groups.
The Cradle Coast is home to many vulnerable species including the Giant Freshwater Lobster, Southern Hairy
Red Snail, Tasmanian Devils, shorebirds and a variety of native plants. Our biodiversity projects maintain species habitat, raise community awareness and ensure healthy local ecosystems.
