What if running could save a rainforest? Patagonia has joined forces with the Bob Brown Foundation, trail runners and the Tasmanian Aboriginal community to raise awareness and gain global support in nominating Takayna / Tarkine as a World Heritage area.

The global premiere of Takayna - the latest film produced by sustainable outdoor clothing brand Patagonia, documenting the threats facing Takayna / Tarkine and the importance of saving this wild place.

Told through the eyes of a rural doctor, who runs ultramarathon distances deep into the forest to scout logging operations, this documentary unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last truly wild places.

A dedicated website has links to petitions and more information.
