In this age of rapid destruction of the biosphere, attended by cynicism and pessimism, our foundation will use ecological reality and optimism to promote real environmental wins.
We aim to help campaigns and activists who show real pluck and intelligence in protecting ecosystems, species and wild and scenic heritage.
My appeal to fund the court case to stop the logging destruction of Tasmania’s magnificent Wielangta Forest drew a generous response from people all over Australia and beyond, though none of this generosity was tax deductible.
Now the Bob Brown Foundation will carry on that work, to protect more scenic land environments, wildlife and marine ecosystems in Tasmania, around Australia, in Antarctica and across our region.
The Foundation is a non-profit fund which will promote the protection and enhancement of, and the provision of information and education about:
- The wild and scenic beauty of Tasmania
- The ecological integrity of Australia
- Earth's wilderness
- The happiness of humanity on Earth
