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’ve visited this pristine region for my 50th birthday back in 2012. I cannot imagine loggers can consider clearing this incredible forest.

    Hi there, will be heading to Tasmania from the ACT on the 17th of Jan. My friend and I are interested in coming & supporting the frontline in whatever way we can. I’ve been to a forest blockade in the Tarkine in 2018 so am somewhat familiar with the ethic/protocol of being in the space! Please give me a ring to let us know details. We have a car and are happy to bring supplies.

    Go for it! We went through the Tarkine recently, and it is too precious to touch. Needs to be heritage listed, and protected forever!
