March with us in Hobart for takayna / Tarkine - one of the last wild and threatened places on Earth.
We will assemble at Franklin Square at 12noon and march to Parliament Lawns where we will have speakers and live music.
Todd Walsh - the Lobster man
With a Tasmanian election looming, Tasmania’s takayna / Tarkine needs the newly elected government to give secure and permanent protection to its globally significant values.
Liberal and Labor policies threaten to turn this special place into a wasteland. They need to hear from you.
March with us in Hobart to take action and help win protection for wild, ancient and threatened takayna / Tarkine.
takayna / Tarkine contains Australia’s largest temperate rainforest and 40 000 years of Aboriginal history in one of Australia’s richest Aboriginal cultural landscapes.
FORMERLY PROTECTED RAINFORESTS – THREATENED
Rainforests that were reserved decades ago are again available for logging, after Premier Hodgman’s government weakened protection of these ancient and rare ecosystems. Logging in these rainforests will drive climate change and threaten their endangered wildlife.
NATIONAL HERITAGE LISTED COAST – THREATENED
Premier Hodgman’s government not only wants to re-open destructive off-road vehicle access over this irreplaceable landscape, it wants to open new tracks on remote stretches of the coastline. These moves threaten the cultural landscape and sites that tell the stories of thousands of years of Aboriginal history and are critical to the living cultural connections for Tasmania’s Aboriginal community.
