Join us in Hobart on Sunday 9 December for a day of fun and awareness-raising to protect the Tarkine!

An inspiration to all who visit it, Tasmania’s Tarkine wilderness is home to some of the most important temperate rainforest left on Earth. But mining companies have plans to change all that by strip- and open-cut mining the Tarkine, destroying the region’s Word-Heritage values forever.

That’s why we’re inviting you to stand up for the Tarkine! Learn about the immediate threats posed to the Tarkine by open-cut mining, and find out what you can do to help protect this globally significant wilderness for future generations.


Keynote speakers include:
Bob Brown (Wilderness Society co-founder, former leader of the Australian Greens, and Tarkine Coalition patron)
Vica Bayley (Wilderness Society Tasmanian Campaign Manager)
Christine Milne (Current leader of the Australian Greens)
Scott Jordan (Tarkine National Coalition)
Dyan Summers (Aboriginal elder from Northern Tasmania)


Event details:
When: 12 noon, Sunday 9 December, 2012.
Where: Parliament Lawns, Hobart, Tasmania.
