Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.

In many ways, the creation of Liffey Valley Reserves in 1991 marks a watershed in the history of the Australian conservation movement.

Bob Brown, then a member of the Tasmanian Parliament, had recently won the Goldman Prize (an international environment award worth around $50 000) when a couple of bush blocks near his Liffey Valley cottage came up for sale.

Bob was keen to save the bush blocks from imminent logging. He eventually decided to put in a bid, and asked a friend to attend the auction.

‘I was sitting in the Tasmanian Parliament and he rang at night to say you’ve secured the blocks at the reserve price of a quarter of a million dollars,’ says Bob.

A sympathetic bank manager and some very generous donors came to the rescue, and Liffey became the first Reserve for a new conservation organisation, the Australian Bush Heritage Fund, now Bush Heritage Australia.
