Next Wednesday in Sydney there’s a great night happening at Paddington Town Hall with Bob Brown, Ian Cohen and COSTA!
Are you coming?
The Tarkine Wilderness is home to over 60 endangered species and the largest remaining unbroken tract of temperate rainforest in the southern hemisphere.
With National Heritage and World Heritage recommendations, the Tarkine is the last stronghold of many critically endangered species.
The first of ten open cut mining proposals is about to start operations and approvals for others are being challenged in the federal court.Next door to the Tarkine at Savage River… is this what we’re going to allow to happen to our last great southern wilderness?
Time to act! Hence this fundraiser, and the making of The Battle for the Tarkine documentary by Julian Knysh.
If you want some background on what’s at stake here, see ABC Analysis: The battle for Tasmania’s Tarkine Wilderness and also Inside Story; Drawing a fine line in the Tarkine.
There’s going to be an exhibition of Tarkine photography by Australia’s best loved wilderness and nature photographers including Steve Parish, Chris Bell, Kipp Nunn, Peter Walton and more.
As part of the night, Costa will be auctioning off some of these amazing photographers work, as well as a place on our Urban PDC coming up this January – what a score!
There will be live cello to Tarkine imagery, conversations with environmental legends, new friends and good food.
And the chance to stand up and be counted on an issue that deserves all our support.
