Ancient Frankland River forests in takayna / Tarkine are still standing after 300 days of frontline action. For two years the loggers have wanted to destroy these rainforests and tall eucalyptus forests but our activists have intervened to stop them.  For now, this forest home for eagles, quolls, wombats, owls and the world’s largest freshwater crayfish is safe.

With two endangered Wedge-tailed Eagle nests in the proposed logging area, a logging exclusion zone will be in place from July 2018 until January 2019 to allow the eagles to breed.  The loggers could return in February 2019 but our Foundation will ...

Ancient Frankland River forests in takayna / Tarkine are still standing after 300 days of frontline action. For two years the loggers have wanted to destroy these rainforests and tall eucalyptus forests but our activists have intervened to stop them.  For now, this forest home for eagles, quolls, wombats, owls and the world’s largest freshwater crayfish is safe.

With two endangered Wedge-tailed Eagle nests in the proposed logging area, a logging exclusion zone will be in place from July 2018 until January 2019 to allow the eagles to breed.  The loggers could return in February 2019 but our Foundation will be back in the Frankland River forests to stop them once again.

Logging continues elsewhere in the Tarkine, with 30 000 hectares in the Tasmanian government’s ‘permanent’ logging zones. Our Foundation will continue to ramp up our campaign to protect takayna / Tarkine as a World Heritage listed National Park. We must defend one of Earth’s last great wild places.
