The Tarkine is one of Tasmania’s biggest areas recognised as World Heritage located in North West Tasmania. It is also a refuge for native species like the Tasmanian devil.

The Environmental Defenders Office has launched a legal challenge to the Tasmanian Supreme Court and protect the Tasmanian devil.
