Bob brown Foundation Media Release: Global Canopy Campout to aid Australia’s largest temperate rainforest in takayna / Tarkine
This year’s global Big Canopy Campout event in October is destined to be one of the most significant aerial camping events in the history of forest defence.
This time around, the international stage will be showcasing and raising funds for the last largest remaining tract of cool temperate rainforest in the world, Tasmania’s takayna/Tarkine.
To build on the significance of this event, the campout will be held in areas of still threatened rainforest. Industrial logging operations at the crux of an environmental, climate emergency, when species extinction is driven by habitat loss and the lungs of the earth are being systematically shredded for woodchips, it is insanity. And we want the world to know.
Being amongst the trees has a powerful effect on people. Going to the forest is like going home for us - a long distant memory that we can’t quite put our fingers on. We came down from the trees well over a million years ago but the feeling of being in the canopy lingers still in our genetic memory.
To celebrate the world of tree climbers, their professions and the evolution of climbing systems, we have 250 limited edition Hitch Climber Eccentric's in the bespoke Big Canopy Campout colours up for grabs.
Read the story below about how this product came to be and what it now offers the tree climbing world.
This year we have partnered with the Bob Brown Foundation in their fight to end illegal logging on our beautiful forests.This week we received a blog detailing a day in the life of Erik Hayward, Tarkine Campaign Assistant at Bob Brown Foundation.
