Bob Brown Foundation has called on the State Government to abandon plans to re-open off-road vehicle tracks in takayna / Tarkine, following the Full Court of the Federal Court handing down its judgement in the Tasmania Government’s appeal.

“This debacle has gone on long enough, the Government should drop its project and keep this treasure trove of Aboriginal heritage on the takayna / Tarkine coast protected,” Bob Brown said.

“Tasmania’s taxpayers are paying dearly for a petty piece of political obstinacy – in refusing to ask the Federal Environment Minister to tick off its plans to open the tracks in takayna / Tarkine,” Bob Brown said.
