Protect the Spotted Handfish

from 10.00

One of only 10 populations of Spotted Handfish is in danger because of a pipeline intended to irrigate a golf course.

The pipeline will cut through a marine conservation area south of the Arm End Nature Recreation Area, where a developer plans to build a golf course and exclude the community from their local public reserve.

Any leaks or incidents during operations or construction would potentially harm the critically endangered Spotted Handfish.

The Spotted Handfish needs very clean water to breed, any reduction in its habitat or Handfish numbers would be a disaster for this marvelous marine creature, found no-where else on earth.

The Tasmanian Conservation Trust urgently needs donations to help protect one of the 10 known habitats of the Spotted Handfish!

The TCT is supporting the local community, who are fighting for the Handfish in the Resource Management and Planning Appeals Tribunal.

The best outcome to protect the Spotted Handfish is for the developer to relocate and redesign the pipeline.

Donate to the TCT to help us pay for a lawyer and marine experts to argue on behalf of these wonderful and endangered creatures in the Tribunal!

We need to raise $20,000. All funds raised from this appeal will go directly to the campaign to protect the Spotted Handfish.
