Tasmania is globally known for its old growth native forest, endemic species, significant biological diversity and spectacular wild places. Tasmania is home to one of the world’s last great temperate wilderness areas, to the world’s tallest hardwood trees (often exceeding 100m in height) and to the largest tract of temperate rainforest in Australia. Unfortunately, significant tracts of native forest are still being logged or are scheduled for logging. species and biological diversity.
The project is located in the Central Highlands of Tasmania and protects over 7000 hectares of old-growth native forests from being cleared, preventing the release of emissions and securing pristine habitat for a range of plants and animals including many rare and endangered species: the Tasmanian devil, the wedge-tailed eagle and the spotted quoll.
