• Summer for Swifties – 2020 20 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.

  • The Big Canopy Campout 2020 13 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Stop Adani Virtual Event Convoy Anniversary Film and Q&A

    Tuesday, May 05, 2020 at 07:30 PM
    Your desktop, smart phone or tablet!

     

     

    We are excited to announce and invite you to a special fundraising and Q&A event to celebrate the anniversary of the Stop Adani Convoy.

    On Tuesday May 5, the Bob Brown Foundation will be hosting a screening of our film 'CONVOY' to mark the anniversary of the Stop Adani Convoy. On May 5 last year thousands of people rallied on Parliament Lawns in Canberra after the Convoy arrived.

    CONVOY follows Bob Brown and the Stop Adani Convoy’s epic road trip from Tasmania to the Galilee Basin in Far North Queensland a distance of over 3500 kilometres, with the aim of stopping the development of the Carmichael coalmine.

    Following the movie we'll also host a special Q&A with Bob Brown, film Director Matthew Newton, AdaniWatch investigator Geoff Law and Galilee Blockade organiser Ben Pennings.

     

     

    During the Q&A you'll hear and learn more about Foundation's AdaniWatch project and how you can be part of the campaign to Stop Adani.

    Also showing at this virtual event will be the virtual Stop Adani Hallelujah Chorus, and you can join.

    To be a part of this special one-off event all you need to do is purchase your ticket. Each ticket includes access to the film and a live Q&A which will be centred around the filmmaking, the campaign, and what you can do to support it.

    Here you can also purchase the accompanying 'Convoy' book which has inspirational speeches from Stop Adani Convoy rallies, including acclaimed author Richard Flanagan and Aboriginal defender Adrian Burragubba when you purchase your ticket.

     


     

    How does it work?

    Step 1: Watch the film. Each ticket holder will have a unique link to watch the film; we recommend the latest you do this is at 6.30pm AEST on Tuesday 5 May but we will send you the links in advance so you can watch earlier if preferable.

    Step 2: Join the Q&A. You will be sent a link to join the live Q&A at 6pm AEST on Tuesday 5 May. All registered attendees can ask questions and interact live with the panelists, including Bob, members of the film and campaign team.

    This way you can watch the film at the same time as others as it streams to you simultaneously and be part of an interactive question and answer time immediately after.

    Please note: If the cost is a barrier, or if you require a captioned version of the film, please send us a message or contact contact@bobbrown.org.au

     


     

    Convoy film synopsis

    Convoy is an intimate look at what it takes to undertake a major environmental act of defiance.

    It follows former Greens leader Bob Brown, and the many concerned Australians that join him as he sets out on an epic road trip from Tasmania to the Galilee Basin in Far North Queensland a distance of over 3500 kilometres, with the aim of stopping the development of the Carmichael coalmine.

    This is a film about the power of peaceful protest and the power of individuals to make a difference and a study of true leadership. It explores how grassroots campaigning can shift public and political opinion. It will show what motivates individuals to take a stand and encourage and empower others to do the same.

    SAVE THE DATE - JOIN OUR ONLINE ACTION

    You can join us by registering for our Virtual Action https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_KUcwlTONRCuOJuM9Ax2Cmg

    This event will be a zoom 'rally' with guest speakers sharing about the values of the Tasmanian forests, the actions you can be involved in and a stand together (virtually) to say SAVE TASSIE'S FORESTS.

     



    The Wilderness Society, The Tree Projects, Blue Derby Wild and Bob Brown Foundation are organising a virtual action calling for secure protection of Tasmania's native forests.

    April 8 2020 is when 356 000 hectares of forests that should be in reserves become available for logging. These forests, called Future Potential Production Forests by the Tasmanian Liberal Government, have been in a moratorium since 2012.

    Logging forest nature reserves. With proven High Conservation Values (HCVs). In a climate and extinction crisis. On top of the 800,000 hectares of public state forests Suss Timber Tasmania already logs. It's an outrage.

    Worse still, over $400 million of public money was used to compensate the logging industry, which agreed to protect these areas in exchange. But now it says it wants to log them anyway and Premier Gutwein is only too happy to help.

    These threatened forests include: 
    • 100 000 hectares in takayna / Tarkine
    • vast stretches of on Tasmania's east coast from Blue Tier in the North to surrounds of Ben Lomond and Douglas-Apsley National Parks.
    • Swift Parrot habitat of Wielangta and Bruny Island.
    • Tracts of the Great Western Tiers.

    Be part of our virtual rally with many guest speakers all telling Tasmania's 'Premier for Climate Change', Peter Gutwein to stop this public policy madness.

    Tasmania and the rest of the world needs forests to stay intact for climate, wildlife, environment and society.

  • Activist Drop-in Session

    Monday, December 16, 2019 at 04:00 PM
    Bob Brown Fondation, Level 4 Bathurst St, Hobart TAS
    Every Monday evening we will be hosting activist drop-in sessions for people who are keen to get involved with the campaign to protect takayna / Tarkine from logging this spring/summer.
    These sessions will provide an opportunity to hear updates and latest news on the Tarkine Campaign. They will also provide an opportunity for people to hear about how you can join us at the frontline camp in the Sumac forest.
    There will also be ways to join the campaign even if you can’t get to the Tarkine.
    They are a space for you to join brainstorm and organise actions and events with our Campaigners.
    We established a camp at Sumac forest a week ago with the intention of holding the space and protecting the old-growth rainforest from the establishment of a logging road. On Friday the 18th of October our peaceful protest was evicted. We re-established our peaceful occupation of these forests on Monday 21st October.
    Logging could commence imminently, we are prepared for a non violent direct action campaign in the forests and hosting support actions in the cities. We are now critically and urgently seeking more people to join the campaign.
    No RSVP to the drop-in session is necessary – but please contact Molly@bobbrown.org.au for further details.

    These sessions will provide an opportunity to hear updates and latest news on the Tarkine Campaign. They will also provide an opportunity for people to hear about how you can join us at the frontline camp in the Sumac forest.
    There will also be ways to join the campaign even if you can’t get to the Tarkine.
    They are a space for you to join brainstorm and organise actions and events with our Campaigners.
    We established a camp at Sumac forest a week ago with the intention of holding the space and protecting the old-growth rainforest from the establishment of a logging road. On Friday the 18th of October our peaceful protest was evicted. We re-established our peaceful occupation of these forests on Monday 21st October.
    Logging could commence imminently, we are prepared for a non violent direct action campaign in the forests and hosting support actions in the cities. We are now critically and urgently seeking more people to join the campaign.
    No RSVP to the drop-in session is necessary – but please contact Molly@bobbrown.org.au for further details.
