Their system is quite outdated (still referring to Tony Burke as the Environment Minister, rather than Greg Hunt), however this site remains a useful tool for contacting your local MP.
Tarkine Association Victoria is a non-partisan organisation. However, we would like to acknowledge the important campaign that the Greens are running entitled 'The Tarkine, Too Precious To Lose'. Currently, the Greens are the only political party that has committed to protecting the Tarkine. To find our more about this campaign and read their 'Too Precious To Lose' prospectus, please visit their website.
In 2014, representatives of this Australia-wide community group ran (literally!) through the Tarkine to draw attention to its wild beauty and the huge threats it faces.
