Save the Tarkine
The beautiful and unique Tarkine rainforest is the second largest intact stretch of rainforest in the world, yet mining companies want to destroy it. Earlier this year the Australia Heritage Council made a clear recommendation to protect the Tarkine, but Environment Minister Tony Burke let its emergency heritage status expire, and has yet to visit the area.
Tony Burke needs to make a decision on the Tarkine's heritage status but is under pressure to look the other way from mining companies...If he sees the beauty of the Tarkine first hand, he'll see for himself why he must protect this area. We have a chopper and a team of local scientists and experts standing by, ready to take him straight into the heart of the rainforest for an insider's tour he'll never forget.
Add your name to the invitation to Tony Burke to visit the Tarkine...before it's too late.
INVITE TONY BURKE TO VISIT
We'd all like to be able to visit the Tarkine one day and see pristine nature and rare species of animals - not open cut mines. Ask Tony Burke to visit now.
Dear Minister Burke,
Please visit the pristine and special Tarkine rainforest before you make a decision about its future! You'll see for yourself why this ancient forest needs protecting.
