Protests against logging

Once again the Tarkine forests are being noticed by the public.  Read a report here and another here.

A protesting blockade has been re-established in the Sumac area to hinder further logging. The Bob Brown Foundation says ‘while we wait for political leadership, we will occupy these forests in a peaceful vigil aiming to prevent their loss to logging’.

For interstate and overseas followers of this blog, the Tarkine covers a large area in the north west of Tasmania.

Located south-west of the popular and iconic Sumac Lookout overlooking the Arthur River. This very old Myrtle and Eucalyptus forest is an integral part of the Sumac catchment forest ecosystem, extending southward into core rainforest of the Tarkine. It is an important habitat for the endangered Tasmanian Devil.
