Tasmania’s Liberal Labor coalition will destroy the island’s wildness

Media Enquiries

The Tasmanian Labor party has today proven their priority is not our health, education, environment or climate action but entrenching ongoing destruction of our island’s wild places and wildlife.

“Today’s Tasmanian parliamentary motion by the ALP, supported by the Liberal government, is shocking because it is supporting ongoing native forest logging, mining, toxic salmon pollution and endangered species killing in an age of climate and biodiversity crises. It is a terrible shame to see more of the same support for environmental and climate destruction that Tasmania’s government has embedded in our island state,” said Jenny Weber, Bob Brown Foundation’s Campaigns Manager.

“Once again, Labor is showing that it is the big salmon companies that own them. Never mind that their federal counterparts have promised no new extinctions, Tasmanian Labor is tripping over itself to wipe the Maugean Skate off the face of the Earth. In the election, the Jacqui Lambie Network said there are issues with salmon farming that have to be addressed. They must stick to that statement and stand up against the extinction-causing parties of Labor and Liberal,” said Alistair Allan, Bob Brown Foundation’s Marine Campaigner.
