Tasmania's Tarkine - one of the world's greatest remaining wilderness areasAuthor: Bob Brown Foundation | Time: 4.57 min
Described by CNN as the world’s greatest remaining wilderness area, Tasmania’s Tarkine is under threat from mining. Over 50 mining leases threaten to destroy the natural values of this World Heritage Value landscape. This 4 minute video showcases the Tarkine’s coastlines, rainforests, mountains and endangered creatures. There is only one Tarkine. Let’s protect it for all to enjoy.
Appeal for the Tarkine
You can help our Foundation produce a short film on the Tarkine that Bob can show whenever he speaks at a conference or event around Australia. The more people learn that Australia’s largest temperate rainforest is threatened by huge open-cut mines, the better chance we have of securing World Heritage status for this stunning wilderness.
