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.

    Tragic that we need to fight the government to save the environment!

    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.

    Thank you for working to protect our ancient ecosystems and carbon sinks. I would be interested in helping if we can make it over to Tas

    I’m presently in rural new. Will be flying to TAS on the 4th with my 11 and 14 year old sons. I’m keen to join the camp for two days around the 18th.

    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”
