This is a final report to the CRC for Sustainable Tourism outlining the results of the 1999/2000 project entitled 'Tasmanian Wildlife Tourism: Developing an Inventory of Wildlife Viewing'. The report outlines the project brief and objectives and summarises how each objective has been met. It then describes the methodology taken and database produced. The report also covers some of the issues raised during fieldwork, further ideas for extending the inventory and future possibilities for further use.
During the fieldwork section of this project many little known wildlife tourism opportunities were discovered. While some of this information is still at a preliminary level, it is included to provide a basis for further work examining the potential for future sites and opportunities to expand wildlife tourism in Tasmania.

This project is part of a larger Wildlife Tourism Strategy with a vision 'to establish Tasmania as a world-class wildlife destination by identifying and facilitating the sustainable development and management of wildlife tourism.'

The project brief was to establish an updated inventory of key wildlife tourism experiences, their location and management and report on such to the Wildlife Tourism Project Steering Committee comprising representatives of Tourism Tasmania, Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service, University of Tasmania and Forestry Tasmania.
