Join our takayna / Tarkine forest 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.

    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.

    I am able to support on the front line and from Hobart and volunteer time and resources such as driving supplies and providing emotional support. I am a social worker working in mental health.

    I’m wanting to get involved with the tayakyna/Tarkine protest but unfortunately can’t make it out to the NW currently. I was hoping to be able to support the wonderful people out there by donating some food/meals. Would you be able to give me some information on how to do so?

    Many thanks,

    Humans are a pest species and we cause to much damage. We need to do better and protect our forests and bushland from further destruction.

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