Tasmanian Land Conservancy
The Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) is a non-profit, non governmental organisation that acquires and manages land in Tasmania, Australia, protecting important natural places for biodiversity conservation. It was established in June 2001. As of 2009 the organisation claimed to have protected over 16,000 hectares (40,000 acres) of land in 144 reserves, and owned about 2,000 hectares (4,900 acres) directly, including the Vale of Belvoir, the montane grassland habitat of many marsupial carnivores, and Recherche Bay. As at January 2016, TLC had reportedly protected 65,000 hectares (160,000 acres), and was a $30 million organisation.

One of the organisation's founding volunteers, Jane Hutchinson, was nominated as 2016 Australian of the Year for her leadership as a Board member, Chair of the Board and Chief Executive Officer from 2011.
