takayna is Australia’s largest temperate rainforest and the second largest temperate rainforest in the world.
One of Earth’s last great wild places, it deserves secure, permanent protection.
takayna has one of the highest concentrations of Aboriginal sites in the southern hemisphere and is of ongoing cultural significance.
Waves, propelled by winds unimpeded by any land mass between South America and Tasmania, roll onto the wild takayna coast.
The cleanest air in the world, as measured by the nearby UN monitoring station, blows across its expansive dune fields and into the forests.
These magnificent forests and rivers are home to many rare and endangered species.
This includes the Tasmanian Devil, Tasmanian Masked Owl and the world’s largest freshwater invertebrate, the Giant Tasmanian Freshwater Crayfish.
We take direct action to defend takayna from the onslaught of logging and mining.
From legal tactics to the forest frontlines, our campaign is determined to secure the permanent protection of 495,000 hectares of takayna.
We organise protests and scientific, cultural and adventure events in takayna.
We broadcast the threats to this wild place with films, images and writing.
Governments’ failure to protect World Heritage value takayna is being met head on by our defiant campaigns, legal tactics and direct actions.
With a surging climate and biodiversity crisis, protecting takayna’s rainforests, wild coastline, tall eucalyptus forests, rivers, creeks and wildlife, is more urgent than ever before.
Our work to protect takayna is focused on the following issues.
