Tasmania is a place of incredible natural beauty, but we are intent on exploiting it. In 2014, the Tasmanian and Federal Governments proposed delisting the World Heritage area to allow logging in protected forests. It was the first time a developed nation had sought to delist a site for economic purposes. The proposal was rejected by the World Heritage Committee, but the intent was there and that is worrying.
