Tasmania's World Heritage Forests Will NOT be Delisted

What a happy morning for the forests of Tasmania.  Our government in all their wisdom (not) decided the world heritage forests should be logged or mined so put in a submission to have their world heritage value delisted.

The UNESCO decision has come through this morning that it was a unanimous decision not to do so. It was madness in the first place to even think of logging these wonderful, ancient forests.

I am happy that the people of the world and all the animals will continue to enjoy this part of our home state.

  3. Hi, Pam--
    I heaved a sigh of relief when I read this post. To think that it even had to be deliberated upon!! That is so scary to think of it coming to that. As a lover and fierce protector of forests, I am indeed jubilant that the Tasmanian forests are safe for now, and I do sincerely hope, for forever.

  4. Can you imagine saying it's okay to destroy God's world? In my wildest dreams I can't believe our government would sanction such a thing.

    On second thought...

    Anyway, of all the "places" in the world: mountains, seas, prairies, forests, the later are my favorite. The pictures you posted take my breath. The trees are absolutely majestic. I have a few pine ones from trees in California, and their over 24 inches long. I keep them out year round,min stead of only at Christmas.
