Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service
The day-to-day management of Macquarie Island World Heritage Area is by the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service (TASPAWS) of the Tasmanian Government.
There are normally two rangers on the island whose jobs include acting as guides for tourists who arrive during summer months, monitoring of scientific programs, maintaining walking tracks and eradicating pests which were introduced by the early sealers.
Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service have released a booklet about the Macquarie Island Nature Reserve. This publication can be purchased from the Parks & Wildlife Service Online shop.
Information about the Macquarie Island Pest Eradication Project (rabbits, mice and rats) is available from the Parks and Wildlife Service web site.
