All over the world, old growth forests are under threat, and nowhere more so than in Tasmania. Here, logging for wood pulp and chip threatens a wide variety of habitats and animals, including Australia's largest bird of prey, the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle. The ancient eucalypt forest is habitat for eagles, Tasmanian devils and the basis of a diverse ecosystem but it also represents thousands of tons of fine quality timber, woodchip and profitable pulp. New threats are emerging, but the eagle's story holds hope for new life. In the 10,000 years that it has been separated from the mainland, it has evolved into its own subspecies. For Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagles, the eucalyptus trees are a lifeline, for it is in the oldest trees that they build their nests.
