15 days of community defending Takayna forests

Media Enquiries

As community protests in the Arthur River Forests in Takayna enter the fifteenth day, community protestors have again secured the access to Frankland Road granting the forests a reprieve for another morning. Forest defender Adrienne Murphy has locked into a device blocking the road into the threatened remnant forest.

“While we have seen fifteen days of inaction by the Premier and Forestry Tasmania, that has been countered by fifteen days of relentless community action in defence of the Arthur River forests,” said Bob Brown Foundation Takayna campaigner Scott Jordan.

“The community has shown that when the government fails to stand up for the Masked Owl, Azure Kingfisher, Wedge-tailed Eagle and White-bellied Sea-Eagle, the public will stand up as guardians.”

“I’ve taken this step to stop the logging of native forest in Takayna. The continued destruction of native forests at a time of climate and biodiversity crisis is absolute madness,” said forest defender Adrienne Murphy.

“We can, and must, stop native forest logging now and protect takayna forever.”

“I believe we all have a duty of care to these forests and to our younger and future generations.”
