PETITION: No Cable Car

Let Hobart City Council know what you think about this silly, destructive, dated, non-eco-tourism development on our mountain.

PETITION: Protect The Tarkine

The Tarkine/tarkayna is one of the world’s great wild places, but it is under threat from acid mine drainage, deforestation and contamination of waterways by proposed new mines. Ancient rainforests are being flattened by logging and wildlife-rich ancient eucalyptus forests clearfelled for woodchips. After logging, the area is burnt with a napalm-like substance that pollutes the air. Meanwhile, off-road vehicles drive along the remote takayna / Tarkine coast and are causing irreversible damage to the Aboriginal heritage landscape that has existed for more than 40 000 years. We need action!

 

CAMPAIGN: Tasmania’s Forests - The Wilderness Society

Tasmania has been the stage for many of the Wilderness Society’s greatest achievements. But there’s more to be done. We’re in a race against the clock to expand Tasmania’s network of national parks before this critical life support system is gone for good. Get behind the cause.
