Save the Tarkine... a piece of graffiti that intrigued me today


The Tarkine equates to the largest tract of unprotected wilderness in north-western Tasmania. It also contains the largest rainforest and one of the greatest concentrations of Aboriginal sites found in Australia.

A relic from the ancient supercontinent, Gondwanaland, the Tarkine rainforest, one of the most significant temperate rainforests on earth, amounts to home to 56 threatened and endangered species, such as the Giant Freshwater Crayfish - the world's largest freshwater invertebrate and the Tasmanian Wedge Tailed Eagle - the largest Eagle in Australia.

Claire,

A beautiful picture, and an important piece of nature too. What I didn't understand is the title : "a piece of grafitti that intrigued me today" !

Please explain ...
