Sumac Blockade, takayna / Tarkine

Help stop the logging of the old-growth forests by joining our peaceful vigil camp. 

You can find out more by emailing our Campaign Manager, Jenny Weber, at



takayna / Tarkine contains Australia’s largest temperate rainforest, dating back to the age of the dinosaurs, and some of the richest Aboriginal heritage in the hemisphere. The cleanest air in the world, as measured by the nearby UN monitoring station, blows across the Tarkine’s shores.

A stronghold for Earth’s largest marsupial carnivore, the Tasmanian Devil, and critical habitat for endangered creatures like Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagles (Australia’s largest birds of prey), Spotted-tailed Quolls, Tasmania’s largest nocturnal bird, the Masked Owl, and

the Giant Tasmanian Freshwater Crayfish, Astacopsis gouldi.

The 40 000 year-old Aboriginal cultural landscape has globally significant values that are under-recognised, unprotected, and repeatedly vandalised by off-road vehicles.

Such an intact, wild place is extremely rare worldwide.

Please visit takayna / Tarkine, protect it as World Heritage listed National Park and return it to true Aboriginal ownership.
