    Tasmania hosts some of the most magnificent, unique habitats, aquatic and terrestrial in the world. These are some of the endemic birds of Tasmania, which means Tansania is the only place where they exist in a natural way:
    Tasmanian native hen Gallinula mortierii
    Green rosella Platycercus caledonicus
    Dusky robin Melanodryas vittata
    Tasmanian thornbill Acanthiza ewingii
    Scrubtit Acanthornis magnus
    Tasmanian Scrubwren Sericornis humilus
    Yellow wattlebird Anthochaera paradoxa
    Yellow-throated honeyeater Lichenostomus flavicollis
    Black-headed honeyeaterMelithreptus affinus
    Strong-billed honeyeater Melithreptus validirostris
    Black currawong Strepera fuliginosa
    Forty-spotted pardalote Pardalotus quadragintus

    There are 33 native terrestrial and 41 marine mammals which are known to occur in Tasmania. There are marsupials like Tasmanian Tiger and the Tasmania Devil are kind of famous, but there’s also the eastern quoll, pademelon and bettong. And then, there’s also the Ornitorrhynchus, the spiny but friendly Echidnas, the little forest bat, and so on…

    There is an endemic, now rare dolphin that grows here… The Burrunan, with its beautiful pale skin, wandering around Tazmania seas, minding their business, when suddenly at night, when nothing bad is supposed to happen, giant nets pulled by fishing super trawlers! These dolphins end up trapped, unsuccessfully struggling for as much as they can hold their breath, until they die asphyxiated. These immense fishing nets are trawled along a vast area, completely devastating the bottom of the sea and taking with them tons of animals and plants that are useless for human consumption.

    We definitely don’t want to have the BURRUNIAN DOLPHIN extinct, and we don’t want to eat fish that has been captured by devastating giant super trawlers!! Help us stopping this!
