Today the BBF launched Forest Watch, a new website to monitor native forest logging and burning in Lutruwita/Tasmania. Forest Watch is exposing the destruction that Forestry Tasmania is hiding from you. Using satellite surveillance, government and citizen science data, BBF are holding Forestry Tasmania to account by showing what goes on behind locked gates in Tasmania, where native forests are being destroyed by state-sanctioned logging and burning.

A group of protesters from the Bob Brown Foundation have staged a dramatic protest in front of a large crowd at a Hobart food festival overnight. The activists stood overlooking Street Eats @ Franko event in Franklin Square on Friday, lighting fiery flares as they stood on the steps of the Treasury and Finance building.

They collectively called for an end to post-logging forestry burns in Tasmania, which they say fill Tasmania’s air with toxic fumes and destroy the state’s native environment. The performance comes as the foundation launches a new website that monitors logging and burning activities in native forests across the state.
