Join our takayna / Tarkine forest blockade

The takayna / Tarkine Summer Blockade has begun. And we need you!



Sign up below to join our takayna / Tarkine forest blockade

We are seeing 2020 out by establishing a frontline blockade in takayna / Tarkine’s ancient forests. Overnight, we moved in to blockade the tall ancient forests in the Pieman River area.

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 this summer the loggers are scheduled to return. We plan to be there 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 am a very passionate supporter of Mother Nature of I will be heading to Tasmania tomorrow evening for 3.5 weeks and would love to know if there is anything I can do on the frontline while I am there. Tarkine has suddenly been appearing in my life these past couple of weeks so I’m feeling very drawn to be there to do what I can. I’m happy to join and do what I can!

    Kind Regards,

    Sarah Pollock

    I am totally dismayed by the Tasmanian governments continued determination to log in these ancient forests despite the global climatic calamities. We never learn and sadly financial greed takes precedence over environmental responsibility. As for a Chinese company polluting the Pieman river, I am disgusted that this can be allowed to happen. Sadly these events continue to occur not only in Australia but overseas. If only we could learn respect for our environment and protect it like indigenous communities hav e for centuries.
