Fight for World Heritage Forests

This 4 minute film showcases the magnificent forests threatened with being removed from Tasmania's World Heritage Area and destroyed by industrial scale logging and firebombing.

Share it with your friends so that as many people as possible can see the forests that Prime Minister Tony Abbott wants to destroy.

The World Heritage Committee are meeting now in Doha to consider the Australian Government's proposal to remove 74,000 hectares from the World Heritage Area.

Let's show the Committee that Australian's love their World Heritage Areas, are proud of them and want to see them protected forever.

    Heya folks … if there is one certain thing, it is that the pre-election carrot dangled in front of the Forest Workers of Tasmanian by PM Abbott … to de-list and open up what is left over … was a dead end game … but, it worked in so far as he got their votes. I have trust that the crew who will be looking at this in Doha, will respond in the correct way … which will be to toss it back as a complete nonsense.

    Just a note to wish the protesters able to be there in person good luck. Wish I could be there in person – my thoughts will be with you.

    Thank you in advance to all who get to the protest. I won’t make it down to Tassie in person but I will be there in spirit. I hope the day is successful. So important for us to fight this. I will keep posting from Far South Coast NSW in support of the World Heritage Areas.

    I lived in Tasmania for 2 years and had the chance to walk and explore the forests of Tasmania – they hold some of the best memories of my life and I hope that generations to come have the privledge to see unspoilt forest too. The process involved in getting a forest World Heritage listed is thorough and not based on a whim. I wonder what Tony Abbotts idea is based on?

    As an 85 year old ,and a very very concerned australian ,I am asking all who watch this beautiful and also distressing video to please consider protesting to this heartless government about their plans for the destruction of this unique and pristine area…It is incomprehensible that any human being with any brain or heart would not see the consequences of this action..I have been lucky to have spent time in many of nature’s wonderlands and it is upsetting to think this will be denied to our future generations..once destroyed there will be no going back. we mustn’t let this happen .

    This is just plain crazy. There are no words to describe the beauty of the pristine Tasmanian World Heritage listed forests. There is nothing like this anywhere else in the world. I left my home town of Hobart over 20 years ago but by oath Tony Abbott has a bloody fight on his hands if he even so much as lays a finger on it!!! #tonyabbottisdefinatelynotatreehugger

    I hope people will take 4 minutes out of their busy lives to watch this film and be moved to act to save trees which have grown for centuries in an ecosystem going back millenia. Truly an area of the planet worth preserving.
