Summary
"The Tasmanian forestry industry has been widely criticised for its focus on economic values in its management of the state's forests. The general public's increasing concern with environmental issues and the need for responsible exploitation of timber resources has also raised awareness of the significance of forest areas to Aboriginal people. To ensure that these values are given due recognition, and that Aboriginal sites are adequately protected in areas that could be disturbed by forestry operations, the Tasmanian Forest Practices Board, has instituted a mandatory code. This code regulates forestry operations within State Forests and includes Aboriginal site protection regulations which timber harvesters must adhere to or face prosecution by law. The Forest Practices Board employees an Aboriginal Heritage Officer to assess the Aboriginal values and make recommendations regarding the future management of these. This paper discusses some of the political problems faced by the Aboriginal Heritage Officer in undertaking the assessment and follow-up procedures. [Authors abstract]
