Blue Derby Wild is a volunteer organisation of passionate locals, business owners, adventurers, scientists, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals passionate about north east Tasmania and creating thriving communities and landscapes. We collaborate with academic institutions, government agencies, researchers, Non Government Organisations and anyone passionate about protecting our forests and biodiversity.
Join us in advocating for our native forests. Come experience our beautiful part of the world and support our critical work to protect north east Tasmania's wild places.
It's the best kept secret in Tasmania. We need you to help us show the world how good our wild places are, and why we need to protect them.
Write to our Premier the Hon Peter Gutwein (firstname.lastname@example.org ) about how important intact native forests are to addressing climate change, and as cornerstones of building our eco-tourism industry.
The COVID 19 restrictions have lifted in Tasmania, and we are again able to go on small group citizen science excursions into the threatened forests of north east Tasmania.
Over winter we will be having regular Day Tripper citizen science field trips and launching a citizen science program specifically for MTB riders who are passing through forests slated for logging.
You can register for our Day Tripper events via our events page, and do your own Ride and Record DIY scouting sessions for us while you're riding, also available via our events page.
Want to be part of reviving, reconnecting and reviving our region? We'd love to have you on board.
Whether you're a local business owner, a local passionate about making our communities prosper or passing through and enjoying our wild places, food, wine and way of life, there are may ways you can help.
Contact us to discuss how you, your business or community group can be part of protecting the forests and wildlife of north east Tasmania.
If you can't make it to the forests to help us with our on ground work, we are able to take donations that will go directly to our citizen science and forest conservation programs.
Blue Derby Wild is a community collaboration run by volunteers passionate about protecting our wild places and building a prosperous future for our region.
