Interesting video. Hope they are successful, it's a beautiful area and far more valuable to our environment than it's monetary worth.

What kind of evil person would sacrifice this beautiful natural area to the environmental monster of mining? How does mining take human needs into account? Mining destroys far more than trees. It kills animals and people, too. It's like eating part of your own body because you are hungry...completely counterproductive.

I wish the Tarkine rainforest could be protected.
