Environmental protection - it's in our nature

21 August 2020

As custodians of 60 per cent of Tasmania’s freshwater resources, we play a pivotal role in looking after some of the state’s most important natural assets, with responsibilities that stretch well beyond the generation of clean energy. Our talented aquatic scientists measure water quality and monitor the health of our aquatic ecosystems. It's just one of many jobs here at Hydro Tasmania and Entura that require skills in subject areas like science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
