Tarkine: Senate move for World Heritage study

National Greens Leader Bob Brown will move in the Senate tomorrow that:
 
"The Senate calls on the Government to assess Tasmania's Tarkine wilderness with a view to nomination for listing for its World Heritage values, including those related to its:
a)     Aboriginal values
b)     non-Aboriginal values
c)      natural, forest and wildlife values
d)     wilderness values; and
e)      geological values
 
 
"The Tarkine has enormous potential to attract the world to northwest Tasmania," Senator Brown said.
 
"It deserves World Heritage status but that process first warrants an assessment of it values, in the lead up to a nomination by the state and federal governments. My motion is to get the World Heritage ball rolling," Senator Brown said.
