Media Release: Bob Brown Foundation welcomes Tarkine decision

Bob Brown Foundation congratulates the Tasmanian Government on confirming that the rich Aboriginal heritage on the takayna / Tarkine coast, south of Sandy Cape, will be kept safe from future destruction by off road vehicles.

"The wider Tasmanian public will welcome this outcome. Most of all, saving this heritage is due to a long, defiant campaign by the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre. Their pride in country has won out," said Bob Brown.

“Premier Gutwein’s government should match the $10 million they are investing in ‘new and improved recreational driving opportunities across the West Coast,’ and give $10 million to the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre to help manage and protect the takayna coast south of Sandy Cape. If the Government is going to compensate the off-road vehicle community then so to should the Aboriginal people be given funding to look after the globally significant takayna coast,” Campaign Manager Jenny Weber said.
