Protect takayna / Tarkine

takayna / Tarkine in northwestern Tasmania is home to one of the last undisturbed tracts of old growth rainforest in the world. Yet this place, which remains largely as it was when dinosaurs roamed the planet, is at the mercy of destructive extraction industries, including logging and mining.

The 40-year fight to protect this area is a fight for the future of our last truly wild places.
