EDO Tasmania is representing The Wilderness Society (TWS) in proceedings challenging the decision that the proposed Halls Island/Lake Malbena helicopter-accessed standing camp does not require approval under the EPBC Act.

The case explores important issues regarding the operation of national environmental laws, the level of scrutiny expected for developments in our wild places, and the responsibilities of the Federal Minister in assessing proposals that put internationally-recognised wilderness values at risk.
