The Styx Valley Protest Structure is a project by Andrew Maynard to attempt to save the Styx Valley Forest , a unique ecosystem in south western Tasmania. Unfortunately the valley falls just outside the South West National Park and is now under attack from logging companies that clear fell such areas and burn any remnant vegetation once they have removed any valuable timber.
Although protesters have already been gathering within the forest, Maynard’s Global Rescue Station would shelter them in extreme weather conditions. Additionally, the shelter would be attached to three trees, thereby directly securing them per structure from logging. Furthermore, the surrounding trees will pose a threat to the structure if felled. Therefore a small number of structures can secure the well being of a large area of pristine wilderness.
