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.

    Insane that this is still happening, Australia needs to hold a state and national referendum on native forest logging, the vast majority of the Australian public are against native forest logging.

    Total national disgrace.

    Absolutely disgraceful to continue logging our native forests considering the destruction of the 2020 bushfires and the loss of habitat due to continued land clearing and what we now understand the extinction of our natural world. Everyone should read David Attenbourough’s recent book “A life on our Planet”
