TARKINE (TAKAYNA). World Heritage, not Woodchip

TARKINE (TAKAYNA). World Heritage, not Woodchip

Proceed with the 2011 Report of the Australian Heritage Council and recommend that the TARKINE ( TAKAYNA) be added to the Australian National Heritage List.

Why is this important?

The Tasmanian government is to introduce legislation on 7 March 2017 to commence logging in the TARKINE in an area of Unique Temperate Rainforest. The TARKINE is an area that contains a disease free population of Tasmanian Devils, home to the threatened Wedge Tail Eagle, and the unique giant Fresh Water Lobster.
