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.

    Together with my boyfriend, I spent the last one and a half years in Tasmania. We love this very special place and heard about your protest camp.

    If there is a chance to protect tasmanias rainforests and wildlife for the future and to stop logging old growth forests, we would like to support your project!

    I would love to come and help you on the frontline defend Tarkayna/Tarkine. I have a week from 1-8th May – I am coming from Queensland and thought flying would get me down and helping a whole lot quicker. Is this possible? Also where would be the best place to fly to and is there transport from there to the camps.

    I am an outdoor educator with experience in group facilitation, climbing, paddling, hiking etc as well as practical skills including welding, cooking, and general duties to help keep a camp running. I am willing to help support you all in whatever way I can.

    Thank you

    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.
