Don't Dump in the Tarkine Rainforest

Don't Dump in the Tarkine Rainforest

MMG wants to destroy 285 hectares of rainforest and melaleuca forest to dump twenty five million cubic metres of toxic, acid-producing mine tailings.  World Heritage value rainforests within takayna / Tarkine are threatened by this assault on wilderness and the wildlife that rely on it for habitat.

This area is home and feeding ranges for Tasmanian Devil, Spotted-tailed Quoll and Masked Owl. Our Foundation has held out the drilling rigs since December, but the company is pushing ahead with an application for federal environmental approvals.

We need you to urge Federal Environment Minister Susan Ley to use her powers under the Environment protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act to not approve the project and end this folly.
