An amazing month for nature.
The extraordinary work that has gone into the Tasmanian Forest Agreement culminated over the last week, as we put all our effort into ensuring that the Agreement would deliver real protection for our forests - despite changes made by Tasmania’s Upper House.

This was not an easy decision for us, but we believe that the only real hope for our forests lives with this Agreement.
