The forest, the coast, grassy plains and the rivers of the Tarkine were visited by an enthusiastic group of professional and citizen scientist this weekend. The mission was to find and record the rich and diverse range of living things in these environments to help build evidence of the outstanding values and these places.
This is especially relevant for an area of the Sumac forest that is scheduled to be logged in by the Tasmanian Government funded forestry program in 2018, it hosts amazing old growth rainforest, with unbelievably tall trees hundreds of years old and every niche ecosystem you can think of for plants, insects and mammals.

Tasmanian's Central Plateau has become an integral part of my sense of Tasmania. We've lived in Tassie for over seven years now an have been regular visitors to the Northern parts of the Central Plateau, this landscape now forms central part of what Tasmanian to me.
My husband and sons have been practicing Karate for more than seven years, I've been photographing doing for just as long. Competitions make up just a small part of their Karate life, they all train and teach classes on a weekly basis. That is the core of the Karate whereas competitions are a fun time to get together with the broader Karate community and put some of their skill on show.
