These are the threatened ancient forests in Tasmania's Tarkine. The Frankland River, seen in the image, has two areas of forest threatened by imminent logging on 3km of its banks. The river is one of the few rivers in north west Tasmania home to the world's largest freshwater crayfish.
The forests in these images are known to Forestry Tasmania as FR041B, one of the two areas proposed for logging. Our Foundation is calling for urgent protection for these ancient forests.
