The arguments put forward by the Federal government to revoke 74,000 ha of the recent extensions to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) are severely flawed. Around 90 per cent of the land identified for revocation is outstanding eucalyptus forest with high conservation values that has never been logged. Wilderness quality within the TWWHA, potentially enhanced by the 2013, will be greatly diminished, if not lost, by the government’s delisting proposal.
