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 am hoping to become involved in the protest I am booked on the ferry to Devonport on the 24th June. I have worked for MSF for 10 years so am used to working in teams and adapting to difficult conditions

    Thanks

    I’m heading up from Hobart.

    What’s an address for my GPS?

    I’ve actually arrived but am unable to find the camp.

    No locals seem to know about the protests.

    Will wait in the area till I get a response.

    Can’t find a mobile contact on your website.
