Miranda Gibson recently spent over 14 months at the top of a tree defending Tasmania's ancient forests. Using a unique combination of direct action, markets campaigning and social media activism, Miranda helped bring international attention to the plight of the forests, without setting foot on the ground for over a year. Miranda's inspirational story brings to life her experience of living in the upper canopy of a remote old growth forest. From this unique perspective Miranda shares her insights into the current debate around forest conservation in Australia.
