Media Release: Second protest in one day in Tasmania’s Tarkine halts rainforest logging

One person is again attached to logging machinery in takayna / Tarkine today after two Tarkine Defenders were arrested earlier this morning.

“Tarkine Defenders are making consistent and defiant efforts to halt the logging of the precious rainforests in the Que River area of takayna / Tarkine, while the Tasmanian logging industry makes shocking claims that rainforest logging is sustainable and beneficial to mitigating climate,” Bob Brown Foundation’s Campaign Manager Jenny Weber said.

“We are here to put a spotlight on this ecological destruction in an age of climate emergency when the best way to keep carbon in the ground is to protect intact forests like the remarkable ancient one in takayna / Tarkine that is being lost to logging,” Jenny Weber said.
