Join the blockade

The Pieman River blockade in takayna / Tarkine is still standing strong. Help us to continue holding the line.



Sign up below to join our takayna / Tarkine forest blockade

We have been maintaining a frontline blockade in takayna / Tarkine’s Pieman River ancient forests since late 2020. 

Bob Brown Foundation has re-occupied proposed logging coupe BO092C in the Pieman River area of takayna / Tarkine in defence of its rainforests and wildlife. In February 2020 we occupied this coupe and forced the retreat of the logging machines, but the loggers are still scheduled to return. We plan to stay in place to stop them again.




The tall ancient eucalyptus forests and rainforests of takayna / Tarkine are one of Earth’s great treasures, abundant with wildlife such as the Tasmanian Devil and Spotted-tailed Quoll. They are also rich and essential carbon storehouses in the face of the climate emergency.

You can help us prevent the destruction of this incredible forest by joining us on the frontline at the blockade.

If you can’t physically be there, you can show your support by making a tax-deductible donation.

    I was at the MMG blockade in June and would be happy to go back if Minster Ley hasn’t pulled he finger out and put a stop to the proposed tailings dam.

    I would like to help the blockade either by camping out there or running some supplies. You are doing such a great job.

    I’m also quite good at Botany and can assist with a vegetation survey.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for all that you do, you’re a bunch of legends.

    I am heading that way in January, but not for long and with my young daughter. Is it welcome for supporters to visit the site and bring supplies or similar (think chocolates, trail mix etc…requests welcome). Joining the blockade in a meaningful sense is not possible for me at this stage, but I would love to show my support in whatever way I can.

    All the best,

    I am a student living in Adelaide who cares greatly about the Tarkine/takayna and admires all the Bob Browne Foundation does. I hope to come to Tasmania in summer and join the efforts of the Pieman River Blockade.

    I would appreciate if you could email me at [email protected] to provide further information on how I could get involved. (I have been having phone troubles).

    This is hugely important and I hope forums like this can also contribute towards making a difference for the Tarkine.

    Although I’m just a university student from Brisbane, I want to be able to help in some capacity – whether on the ground or through advocacy. This is a huge issue that is too important to be ignored by Australians. If it weren’t for the decisive action made by Bob Hawke, one of my state’s natural gems would be subject to the same treatment. The Tarkine needs the same level of protection and intervention from the federal government.
