World Heritage For Tarkine?

Media Release
Bob Brown 9 Jan 2007

Greens Leader Bob Brown says federal environment minister Ian Campbell should announce World Heritage nomination for the Tarkine wilderness when he visits the area tomorrow.
 
The World Heritage Convention requires signatories, like Australia, to protect prospective sites until they are fully assessed.  "The Tarkine will doubtlessly qualify as an extension of the existing Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area," Senator Brown said.
