The world’s largest freshwater crayfish, Astacopsis gouldi, live in the Frankland River in the Tarkine. The remarkable blue crayfish lives only in this catchment. These creatures have lived safely in the Tarkine since the age of the dinosaurs. Forestry Tasmania plans to log upstream in this Frankland catchment are a direct threat to one of the best habitats left for these creatures.

Hundreds...

Straight from the frontline with Dr Lisa Searle, treesitting in the Tarkine Canopy Vigil.

Day 3. A difficult start this morning. The wind continued to howl all through the night, forcing this tree to dance a pretty wild dance, meaning the treesit ended up on a bit of a tilt by morning. I felt as if I was sleeping in one of the Sky Cells from the Vale (In-joke for Game of Thrones fans...

Here are some of her words:
"The area of the Tarkine in which Julie and I are camped is due to be logged this year. We look around at the forest,...

"Day 2 dawned clear and windy in this little treetop perch. Last night around 7pm the police paid us a visit.

We have a Owl Broadcast Megaphone, a device that broadcasts of animal vocalisations. An efficient and effective survey method for playing bird calls. Late last night the ground crew pulled it out and started playing Masked Owl calls. We were rewarded with a number of calls, some of...
