    Description

    Conservation, reserve management within an interstate context is not unique in or to Australia. Nevertheless, the policy and procedures derived from various, state legislation often creates ambiguity for interstate, land management agencies. This compels such agencies to adopt specific approaches and strategies to landscape management. This paper provides a context for wilderness management in south-east Australia and outlines how the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and Parks Victoria have assembled the Genoa River Interstate Liaison Committee, a committee of people focusing on a "nil tenure", approach to cross border conservation within the Genoa River Catchment. The Genoa River catchment contains 101,000 ha #249,576 acres# of public and private lands including the 25,500 ha #63,011 acres# Genoa Wilderness protected within conjoining, interstate national parks. As a unique bioregion in Australia, where geology, vegetation communities and their faunal assemblages undergo dramatic changes from the coast to the escarpment, the subject Committee's management focus includes: wilderness, biodiversity and fire, introduced vertebrate pests and weeds, and recreational visitation.
