The cool, temperate rainforests of Tasmania are home to a rich variety of unique flora and fauna, with many species occurring nowhere else on Earth. Sadly, deforestation of old growth rainforests in Tasmania is an ongoing issue. Additionally, areas such as the Tarkine wilderness are under threat of a different type of exploitation, with mining companies seeking to plunder resources from below the ground.
The value of preserving Tasmania’s forests and wildlife cannot be overstated, and in a small way I hope these recordings can help others appreciate their priceless beauty. These four tracks captures the vibrant sounds of Tasmania’s beautiful montane rainforests in Mount Field National Park.
