Friends of the Blue Tier are dedicated to gaining the permanent protection of the Blue Tier as part of the proposed Northeast Highlands National Park. The Blue Tier encompasses the headwaters of 6 river systems (Ansons, Great Musselroe, Groom, Ransom, Frome and Wyniford), and provides habitat for numerous threatened and rare species including the Northeast Forest Snail, Simpsons Stag Beetle, Goshawk and Spotted Tail Quoll. The north and southeast slopes of the Blue Tier are recognised as glacial refugia, having survived the last ice-age, and contain a wide range of plant species. The Blue Tier forests are an important carbon store and the native forest continues to convert carbon dioxide to oxygen.
