The Wilderness Society
The Wilderness Society Tasmania began in 1976 at a meeting of just 16 people in the home of Bob Brown in the island's north. A campaign was hatched to save the Franklin River, and the resulting success brought down a federal government, set free a wild river, and gave rise to modern environmentalism in lutruwita/Tasmania. Since then, the Wilderness Society Tasmania and our supporters have been part of the efforts to give protection to our precious island home.
Our work has contributed to the protection of places like the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Savage River, Mount William, Ben Lomond, Douglas Apsley, Freycinet, Tasman Peninsula, and South Bruny National Parks. We've protected the Daintree, the Kimberley, James Price Point and scores of other places across the country. We are committed to standing up for our living planet and undoing the harm that has occurred in the last 200 years.
Today, we are working now to prevent the exploitation of our wilderness areas, expand some of our favourite national parks, protect the takayna/Tarkine cultural landscape and have it returned to its rightful owners, and get our boots on the ground to speak up for forests and critters across the island.
We can't do it without you.
