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.

    Outrageous that here in the 21st century the smallest remnants of remaining forests are being razed so some foreign millionaires can keep their pockets lined. How are we not learning from the experiences of the past, are we really this stupid as a nation?

    Can only be greed or man’s insatiable appetite to plunder nature for immediate gain without regard to preservation for the future and sutvival of the planet

    It is tragic, sick and absolutely bewildering how anybody with some intellect would even conceive at doing such a barbaric act as in clearing these marvelous, magnificent ancient trees.. Only the mind of an environmental rapist or that of a mad person could instruct such destruction. As for the labourers with the machinery are brain dead followers with no conscious except for the dollar sign.
