The Giant Freshwater Crayfish is found only in Tasmania and is the worlds largest freshwater crustacean. Sadly this majestic species is under threat, particularly from logging in their habitat. The draft recovery plan for this species has recently been released and is open now for public comment. The Giant Freshwater Crayfish needs your help to ask our government to implement reserves both in the areas where they live and also in the headwaters of their breeding areas to prevent the deterioration of their habitat and to save this iconic species for the future.
Come along to the submission writing workshop and do your part to save the Giant Freshwater Crayfish. Our government need to know that you care! Together we can give these unique Tassie creatures a fighting chance.
