Since November 12, 2003, Greenpeace and The Wilderness Society have run an international campaign to save Tasmania's Styx forest. As part of the campaign, activists constructed a tree platform, dubbed the Global Rescue Station, 65 metres up one of the world's tallest hardwood trees and lived there for five months. The peaceful protest attracted thousands of visitors to the Styx and drew international attention to the destruction of Tasmania's ancient forests. You can read the activists' updates below.

TAKE ACTION: email the Japanese companies buying woodchips from the Styx.
