Threatened forests

The forests of north east Tasmania include carbon-rich tall wet eucalypt forests, pure rainforest and lowland dry forests. Interspersed within these forests are heathlands, alpine meadows and moraine vegetation. It is a complex landscape that supports rich and diverse plant and animal communities. There are species here which are found only in the north east of Tasmania, including the Simpson’s stage beetle, north east forest snail and genetically distinct rainforest and eucalypt species that evolved from the glacial refugia of the Blue Tier.

North East Tasmania Gondwanic National Park

Tasmania has some of Australia's most iconic wild places and Gondwanic remnant vegetation.  Over the years various community, scientific and political leaders have articulated a clear case for a national park in north east Tasmania that protects the unique landscapes, fauna and flora of the area.

There is an exciting and important opportunity to protect our forests and wild places, creating and shaping the missing major piece of biologically unique conservation estate in Tasmania waiting to be protected.

Unlawful Logging Supreme Court Case

Support our case in the Supreme Court of Tasmania challenging the unlawful logging of Tasmania's forests. Our case is pulling apart the laws that allow government business enterprise Sustainable Timber Tasmania to self regulate their native forest logging practices. If you want to help hold this deeply flawed and non-transparent system to account throw some forest saving donations our way HERE
