These have included a range of projects including: ongoing weed eradication programs, feral cats, Gambusia, sustainable farming, Master TreeGrowers, salinity, biodiversity, community engagement, revegetation and school programs.

Tamar NRM November 2016
An outcome from our Biodiversity Conference held on 26-28 June 2007 with many local, national and international speakers.
The Regional Outcomes On-Farm for Sustainability (ROOFS) concept was developed into the ROOFS Delivery System through a National Landcare Programme funded scoping study during 2005-06. The report summarises the combined outcomes of two projects, the ROOFS Regional Pilot project and the ROOFS Native Vegetation Pilot project which aimed to trial the delivery of Stages 1, 2 and 3 of the four stage ROOFS program for groups of farmers in the Tamar Region.
The Tamar Sustainability Index (TSI) is a system for calculating the benefits of environmental stewardship services that farmers provide to the wider community. The project was collaboration between CSIRO and Tamar NRM, funded by the Department of Agricultural, Fisheries and Forestry under the National Landcare Programme. The project commenced in March 2007, completed June 2008.
