The committee received over 9,600 emails and form letters for this inquiry. The overwhelming majority of these were opposed to the Government's 2014 proposal to the World Heritage Committee to modify the boundaries of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Due to the large number, the committee decided not to publish on its website every email and form letter it received from individuals. The committee decided to publish a selection of individual submissions, which were indicative of the types of views expressed, and has also published examples of each type of form letter received.
