TAP is not an environment group and is not politically-aligned. We have fought successfully for 10 years to stop Gunns and the State and Federal Governments from building a 1.1million tonnes PA pulp mill in a valley that is home to 100,000 people on the island of Tasmania.
TAP was the first group to oppose a pulp mill in the Tamar Valley. We were originally called TRAC which became TAP Into A Better Tasmania. TAP was also the first community group in Tasmania to oppose industrial tree plantations.
TAP has prevailed over almost insurmountable odds to prevent dangerous, corrupt and irresponsible people from degrading the Tamar Valley in Tasmania. TAP uses imaginative and bold actions to defend Tasmania from Gunns, their successors and their political cronies. TAP provides a stimulating informaton forum in the Tamar Valley.
TAP tracks all wood chip exports from Bell Bay wharf 6. Ships are loaded by 2 conveyors from ARTEC chip mill. Tasmania's largest exporter of native forest wood chips has no website.
Ships usually berthed for 3 days while loading.
