Tasmania's Wilderness Battles: A History is a 2008 book by environmentalist Greg Buckman, who has "spent [his life] fighting Tasmanian environmental battles."[1] The book looks at the wilderness areas of Tasmania which have been the focus of extensive conflict over environmental issues. Buckman presents a record of some of the significant events in that conflict, primarily from the viewpoint of an environmentalist.[2][3][4][5][6]

Hello, everybody! I’m Markus from development at TASMANIAN TIGER. With me here today is Eli from Project Gecko. Hey, Eli! Hello, Markus! We want to take a look at the TASMANIAN TIGER Belt LC today. "LC" stands for laser cut. The TT Warrior Belt LC is cut very flat. As a result it fits very snugly, and unlike the previous Warrior Belt, the "LC" is not padded. I'll show you how it looks now. We have four vertical laser cut slots, as well as four horizontal cuts, for fastening MOLLE equipment. You can guide the belt through the vertical cuts, like I have done here. You can fasten the holster and other similar items. This is usually also possible with these loops. On the back side, we have equipped the TT Warrior Belt LC with non-slip material. You can wear it on belts etc. any time. When you wear the TT Warrior Belt LC on duty belts, you can easily remove the non-slip material and attach the duty belt directly to the Velcro. The TT Warrior Belt LC won't slip then, and you can wear it comfortably. Now we'll show you the TT Warrior Belt LC on a person. Here you can see how ergonomically you can wear the TT Warrior Belt LC. With the padding removed it is not bulky at all, but still stable enough to attach a holster. Eli has replaced the belt that comes with it, and is using a belt with a cobra buckle instead. That's not a problem and you can do so at any time. Eli, if you wouldn't mind turning around, please. Now we can also see the wide spot where you can attach five or six MOLLE strips. For example, an IFAK pouch is not a problem at all. And what we also see is that we have a great deal of freedom of movement for the legs in the front so you can move about easily in the belt. With the TT Warrior Belt Laser Cut we have done away with connecting points for carrier systems, which makes it exceptionally lightweight. Likewise, the flat and ergonomic design makes the TT Warrior Belt LC a lightweight and effective duty belt. I hope you all enjoyed the video! Visit us at You can find accessories for the TT Warrior Belt LC and more there. Until next time, this is Markus. Thanks for watching!



The book has several primary themes, including:

The black and white photographs included capture the iconic characters of the major environmental battles of the era being examined, and include images of Eric Reece, Olegas Truchanas, Doug Lowe, and Bob Brown.

Tasmania's Wilderness Battles is one of a number of books that were published in connection with the 25th anniversary of the halting of the Franklin Dam project, one of the campaigns which is described in the book,[1] and in which Buckman was active. He has also been involved in campaigns to save Tasmania's forests. Since the early 1990s he has been associated with the Tasmanian and Australian Greens.[2]

The book was launched in Hobart on 12 June 2008 by a Green senator, Christine Milne, outside the Tasmanian State Parliament.[11]

The book was longlisted for the 2009 John Button Prize.[12]

Critical reception

Stephenie Cahalan, reviewing and contrasting Tasmania’s Wilderness Battles and Geoff Law's The River Runs Free, notes that environmental issues and the places over which the legal and political battles were fought "have played a huge part in shaping the Tasmanian parliament either by prompting the election of Green party candidates or featuring strongly in policy and debate." By including excerpts from the 1998 Labor Green Accord, Tasmania’s Wilderness Battles, Cahalan writes, "helps to detail an important feature of Tasmanian political history which is frequently referred to but seldom explained."[13] Buckman "studies Tasmania’s three big industries — hydro-electricity, mining and forestry — and provides surprisingly easy reading for what is essentially a meticulous reference book." She praises its index and detailed timeline, thorough assemblage of facts and figures, combined with a light tone.[13]

Susan Austin, writing in GreenLeft, describes Buckman's section on national parks as "a little dry and detailed" but approves the way that, throughout the book, "time and time again Buckman exposes the 'development at all costs' attitudes of present and past state and federal governments".[14]

Use in education

The book is used for teaching Environmental Studies in Victoria, Australia,[15] and in Washington State University, Vancouver's history program.[16]
