  • Swift Parrot Snap Action – Hobart 108 rsvps

    Wednesday, December 09, 2020 at 01:00 PM
    Parliament Lawns, Hobart

    In response to this tragic news about the Swift Parrot’s decline, Bob Brown Foundation is organising a snap demonstration calling for immediate protection of all Swift Parrot habitat.

    "A decade ago there was alarm at the estimates of 1000 pairs of remaining Swift Parrots. The news of ‘less than 300 individuals’ is notice of a death spiral. Chief villain here is the Tasmanian government’s logging of the parrots’ nesting sites” said Bob Brown.

    Join us on Hobart’s parliament lawns next Wednesday 9th December at 1pm, to coincide with Forestry Tasmania's appearance at parliamentary Estimates hearings.

    RSVP below.

    Wednesday, December 02, 2020 at 09:00 AM through December 04, 2020
    Online or Streaming Live to our Hobart Office in Hobart, Australia

    The Great Forest Case hearings are on 2nd and 3rd of December!

    Bob Brown Foundation is taking on a monumental legal case challenging the regulation of native forest logging. 

    Our case will argue that the Tasmanian Regional Forest Agreement (RFA) is not a valid agreement. RFAs are outdated agreements which are notoriously inadequate for protecting our threatened species. If our case is successful, it will not only be good news for Tasmania, but will be significant for other states in Australia, as it will set a precedent for similar litigation.

    The Great Forest Case is the best change in a generation of ending native forest logging. It will be a history-making event and we encourage you to join in and be a part of it. There are several ways you can join in on the action:

  • Summer for Swifties – Swift Parrot Citizen Science Surveys

    Friday, November 27, 2020 at 08:30 AM through December 21, 2020
    Southern Tasmania
    Critically Endangered Swift Parrots are breeding in Tasmania's forests - we are heading out to spot them for a citizen science project.

     

    The critically endangered Swift Parrot is threatened by logging in its native forest habitat. Our Foundation is campaigning for the protection of all Swift Parrot habitat in secure conservation reserves.

    This summer we are hosting a citizen science project to record Swift Parrots and our focus will be on the permanent logging zones where the parrots could be this season.

    Once you have booked to attend you will hear from your survey leaders about the logistics, carpooling and where to meet.

    Most surveys will be a full day out in the field, departing from Hobart at 8:30am.

    We will be releasing more dates for surveys. So if you have missed out on these first surveys, there will be more.

    Watch the videos below to get familiar with identifying Swift Parrots in Tasmania.

     


     

    Buy tickets here:

    https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/swift-parrot-citizen-science-surveys-tickets-129941902729

     

    Meeting time and location:

    8.30 am

    Outside the Bob Brown Foundation office, 116 Bathurst St, Hobart.

     

    You will need to bring:

    Lunch, a good pair of binoculars, wet weather gear just in case, sun protection and water.

     


     

  • International Day of Action on Forest Biomass Energy

    Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at 08:30 AM
    Executive Building, 15 Murray St, Hobart TAS 7000

    We are taking part in an International Day of Action on Forest Biomass Energy on 24th November and need your help to make it a success.

    Join us in Hobart outside the Executive Building at 8:30 am for a snap rally.

     


     

    In addition a mass online action will flow around the world through the various time zones, starting in the Pacific, via Australia, Asia, Africa, and Europe to the Americas. 

    The focus is an important petition. Many thousands of individual signatures are needed to make a big impact, so we are asking you, your friends, family and colleagues to each sign the petition on the 24th November. You will be joining many people who care deeply in calling for change.

    The petition calls for an end to subsidies and incentives for burning forest wood, for it to be excluded from renewable energy targets, and for the protection and restoration of forests to be prioritised for our health, the climate and biodiversity.

    The target is the European Union and its member countries but this message must come from everywhere affected by Europe’s unacceptable large scale biomass burning and poor leadership – from forests and communities suffering the impacts, to other jurisdictions that are following in Europe’s footsteps – currently leading to a global escalation of this false and damaging climate solution.

    This is going to be an exciting and important campaign event. 

    We encourage you to post our graphics to your social media to spread the word and inspire people to join in. And when you’ve signed the petition on 24th November, have fun by posting a pic of yourselves with the hashtag #forestsarenotfuel, and encourage your friends to sign too. You can access the materials and resources for this here.

    Please join us as we work together with organisations and people all over the world in this global push for change!

     


     

  • Forest Defenders Screening – Randwick NSW 29 rsvps

    Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 07:00 PM
    TBA – Randwick

    I would like to invite you to the special screening of "Forest Defenders". This new and unique film takes you on a journey to the ancient forests of takayna /Tarkine in northwest Tasmania. You will gain an insight into what it takes to protect this unique temperate rainforest from logging.

    And as a special treat Gelato MESSINA is kindly supporting the screening of this film with their new limited edition “Save takayna” sorbet. You'll be able to enjoy a taste on the night.

     


    The final location of the screening will be emailed to you after you RSVP. 


     

     

  • takayna / Tarkine BioBlitz 2020

    Friday, November 13, 2020 at 04:00 PM through November 16, 2020
    takayna / Tarkine

    Tickets to BioBlitz 2020 are now on sale - scroll down for ticket options.

    We will be running our BioBlitz differently in 2020 as a result of COVID19. 

    Rather than running one large event out of Riverbend, we will be splitting our BioBlitz up into six different field trips that will explore and survey different parts of the Tarkine. We will be running the following field trips - Corinna, New Haven, Mount Bertha, Tarkine Coast, Que River and Rapid River. 

    For detailed information on each field trip, please head here. 

    Our BioBlitzes are an exciting, three day festival of citizen science in nature. Over the past five years, we have taken over 500 scientists, supporters and volunteers into the Tarkine landscape to observe and record more than 1800 species of flora, fauna, fungi and more. 

    We bring enthusiastic citizens together with passionate scientists, observing creatures like the endangered Masked Owl or Astacopsis Gouldi, studying beautiful and minuscule myxomycetes and fascinating fungi, lichen and bryophyte, and identifying and recording the vast and varied species of flora that make up the Tarkine's ecosystem. 

    If you are a scientist or naturalist and would like to help us by running a survey, please email molly@bobbrown.org.au for more information. Unfortunately, we have filled all of our volunteer spots for now.

  • The Big Canopy Campout 2020 55 rsvps

    Friday, October 16, 2020 at 12:00 PM through October 19, 2020
    takayna / Tarkine, Tasmania

    This year’s global Big Canopy Campout event in October is destined to be one of the most significant aerial camping events in the history of forest defence.  

    This time around, the international stage will be showcasing and raising funds for the last largest remaining tract of cool temperate rainforest in the world, Tasmania’s takayna/Tarkine.  

    To build on the significance of this event, the campout will be held in areas of still threatened rainforest. Industrial logging operations at the crux of an environmental, climate emergency, when species extinction is driven by habitat loss and the lungs of the earth are being systematically shredded for woodchips, it is insanity. And we want the world to know. 

     


     

    Over the 16th, 17th and 18th October we will be taking to the forest canopies to defend and protect, showcase and expose these incredible Gondwanan relics. The soft lush understories clad in lichen and mosses will be our basecamp setting. Aloft in immense towering giants, perched, poised for camping in the crisp nights there will be forest defenders, community activists, locals, photographers, conservationists, scientists, families, elders, and all those in-between who care and are aware of the fragility of these spaces. 

    We will be occupying and defending locations that are at imminent threat by logging. The message will travel loud and clear to the whole world that Australia is still clearing pristine Rainforests. 

    During the weekend, as the world awakes, BIG Canopy Campers will be opening their eyes among hundreds of others across the globe who will be taking part in this Event. As dawn breaks from Tasmania to London, Malaysia to Russia, dozens of trees in forests, back yards and parks will be filled with Canopy Campers climbing up for global Forests. 

     


     

    Everyone is welcome

    You don’t need to be able to climb! There are opportunities to learn if you are inclined, however, this is a completely inclusive event that will need all the people helping out. The purpose is to be in the trees whether you are in a hammock just off the ground for the afternoon, or spend 3 nights in a Portaledge peering down at the forest canopy from 60m up, it’s about experiencing these wild places and taking part.

     


     

    If you are in Tasmania and would like to get involved in our event contact erik@bobbrown.org.au or RSVP below and we will get in contact with you.

  • Summer for Swifties – 2020 24 rsvps

    Thursday, October 01, 2020 at 12:00 PM
    Hobart

    We are ramping up our campaign for Swift Parrots, calling for the protection of this critically endangered bird and its Southern Tasmanian breeding habitat, which is under threat of logging this summer.

    It has been five years since the Swift Parrot was listed on the UN Red List as critically endangered and the Australian and Tasmanian Government continued to allow the logging of its habitat.

     


     

    Take Action with us:

    RALLY October 10th 2020 – Call for the immediate, proper protection of all Swift Parrot habitat on public lands as the sad, five year anniversary of the Parrot’s listing as critically endangered passes with still no action from Government. RSVP's essential, more information here: https://www.bobbrown.org.au/event_290920

    CITIZEN SCIENCE  Over November and December we will be organising a citizen science project to monitor Swift Parrots in Southern forests.  We are looking for hundreds of citizen scientists, bird-watchers and enthusiastic supporters to join us in a guided monitoring program that will include birdwatching days and flora surveys.

    FRONTLINE ACTION  We will be on the frontline taking action if, and when, logging commences in Swift Parrot habitat. You can join us.  

     


     

    Bob Brown Foundation calls for an immediate cessation on all logging of Swift Parrot breeding habitat (ie nesting and foraging habitats) in order to reduce the risk of extinction of the Swift Parrot.  

    Five years ago the International Union for Conservation and Nature (IUCN) recommended that all areas of public land that support Swift Parrots needs to be placed under secure conservation management. The parrots population is decreasing and their habitat is continuing to decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat. 

    Tasmania’s government has already severely failed the critically endangered Swift Parrot.  All breeding habitat, nesting and foraging habitat for the Swift Parrot needs urgent protection from logging.

    Not just moratoriums and not just some areas - ALL habitat needs to be taken off the logging list (forever!) and put into National Park protection.

    In 2015 scientists stated that based on the Population Viability Analysis (PVA) of available and contemporary data, the Swift Parrot population is predicted to decrease by between 84% and 95% over the next three generations (16 years).  We have already lost five years for the Swift Parrot, while loss of habitat to logging has continued despite expert advice warned against logging.

    IUCN recommends conservation actions including:

    • Place all areas of public land that support Swift Parrots under secure conservation management, particularly those in timber reserves, transport corridors and local government land.
    • Promote revegetation and land reclamation that recreates woodland habitat.
    • Establish incentive, conservation and management agreement and community projects each year for the protection, restoration or conservation management of habitat. 

    The biggest threat to Swift Parrots is habitat destruction. Ideal nesting habitat is mature hollow bearing trees within 10 kilometres of flowering Eucalyptus globulus (Tasmanian Blue Gum) or Eucalyptus ovata (Black Gum). High quality nesting habitat for swift parrots is considered to have more than 15 trees over 100 cm diameter per hectare or 8 trees over 150cm. 

    Individuals can travel up to 5,000 kilometres between their mainland wintering grounds and their Tasmanian breeding sites, making theirs the longest migration undertaken by any parrot in the world.

  • Koalas Need Forests: Webinar

    Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at 07:00 PM
    Your computer, tablet or smart phone!

    Find out what you can do to protect the Koala in NSW as they will be extinct by 2050 unless urgent government action is taken now.

    We call for protection of all remaining native forests now.

     

    Join our online webinar by registering here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84549297032

     

    On 30th of June a report on Koala population and habitat in NSW revealed current legislation does not protect the Koala from extinction. In fact, native forest logging, accelerated land clearing, urban development, mining and climate change fuel the demise of the Koala. After the catastrophic summer fires, the situation for Koalas has only worsened.

    We are holding a webinar to get an update on the current situation in NSW with a great line-up of speakers including NSW Greens MP Cate Faehrmann, Koala rescuer Kai Wild and long-time North East Forest Alliance forest defender Dailan Pugh.

    Hear from the Chair of the NSW parliamentary Inquiry on Koala Habitat Greens MLC Cate Faehrmann who is  leading the fight against habitat loss in  Parliament and on the streets.  

    Koala rescuer Kai Wild who raced to Kangaroo Island right after bushfires ravaged this important koala reserve. He rescued more than 70 koalas by climbing high up into the burnt out canopy and carefully taking them in to wildlife refuge. Kai currently resides near Port Macquarie, helping out in that area with Koala care.

    Dailan Pugh, long time member of the North East Forest Alliance. Dailan will share his insights into the threat logging poses for koalas on private and public land. He has been campaigning for the establishment of two Koala parks in NSW’s northern rivers region area. Unfortunately large parts of  those areas have now also been severely burnt.

    The webinar will be hosted by Campaign Manager Jenny Weber and our Sydney campaigns organiser Doro Babeck

    Our Sydney Campaigns Organiser has an action plan for how you can be involved in ramping up the pressure on Premier Berejiklian to protect Koalas and their native forest habitat.

  • takayna Artivism: Virtual Festival

    Friday, June 26, 2020 at 06:00 PM through June 29, 2020

    "‘All creativity comes from the book of Nature’ said Gaudi: so do all artists. We are part of the wild Earth’s own creativity. Yet the palette is being smashed.

    – Bob Brown

     

    Art in all its forms plays a fundamental role in encouraging people to recognise the intrinsic value of wilderness, and to want to protect nature in its own right. Art has played an integral part in changing the hearts and minds of people, from the Franklin River to the Galilee Basin, and indeed to takayna / Tarkine where hundreds of artists return yearly to our Tarkine in Motion field trip.

    It is for this reason that we present our very first virtual arts festival, Artivism + takayna.

     


     

    Tickets sales have now closed - however if you would like to purchase a festival ticket after 5pm on Friday 26/06/20, please email support@bobbrown.org.au and we will assist you in accessing the festival over the weekend. 

     


     

    We’ve got over 23 amazing speakers coming from all corners of the country to discuss their artistic practices and the wonderful work they do for protecting takayna and planet Earth – from National Geographic photographer Bill Hatcher, to pakana woman Theresa Sainty, to Black Finch Project coordinator Charlotte Watson, and many, many more.

    On Sunday morning, we’ll be facilitating hands-on workshops, from landscape photography, to traditional Tasmanian aboriginal string-weaving practice, to nature journaling and writing.

    On Friday night, to kick the event off, we have a free concert with an all-star line-up of musicians – join Adalita from Magic Dirt, Shane Howard from Goanna, Neil Murray from Warumpi Band and Jim Moginie from Midnight Oil as they play music and talk about what Action for Earth means to them.

    To celebrate the launch of this fantastic, art-filled weekend of activism we are offering this Friday night concert for free to all Bob Brown Foundation supporters.
