Tasmania has reduced its carbon dioxide emissions along with increasing its removal of carbon dioxide. This has allowed Tasmania to become carbon negative, which means they are counteracting the carbon emissions generated by creating more carbon sinks. Forest management practices in Tasmania have changed to significantly decrease the harvesting of native forests that were previously being logged. By preserving these native forests, more carbon is being stored than is emitted, as forests are able to store mass amounts of carbon. Tasmania’s land management strategies are proving to be beneficial for the environment and can hopefully serve as an example for the rest of the world to follow.
