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.

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

    This Forrest was showcased recently on T V by Sir David Attenborough . They are the tallest eucalypts in the World and the only place in the world that they grow also one of the only untouched wilderness areas left. This area of Tasmania needs to be given heritage status to ensure it is never touched and protected forever Shame on Australia for even thinking of logging them they are up to 1000 years old and have been there long before white man even new that Australia existed. Also home to endangered animals such as the last refuge on earth of the eastern Quoll they need to be protected forever shame shame shame on the Tasmanian government for even thinking of destroying this unique part of the world
