Abstract

If one has to choose an arbitrary point in any historical study, the founding of the Tasmanian Conservation trust in April 1968 marked a point in the development of Tasmanian interest in conservation. However, this study aims to examine not the actual founding of the Trust, but rather the efforts and arguments of the conservation enthusiast, especially the bushwalker,whihc cleared the way for the founding of the trust. Therefore it is concerned with the problem of what drove men towards a realisation of the need for conservation, and in what way they argued in an attempt to modify and predominantly anti-conservaton social environment.
