We need you to urge Federal Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek to use her powers under the Environment protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act to reject this proposal to destroy ancient wild forests and habitat for rare and endangered wildlife.
The proposed 140-hectare tailings dam in the takayna / Tarkine rainforests will be seventy times bigger than the Melbourne Cricket Ground. It will be filled with toxic, acid-leaching mine waste pumped over the Pieman River and into the rainforest.
The Federal Environment Minister has the power to reject this project. With your help we can make this happen.
