Tarawatch is planning to send a delegation to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, which is meeting in Canada from July 2-10.

They are campaigning in response to the recent proposal by Environment Minister John Gormley that Tara should be declared a World Heritage Site - despite the fact that the M3 is being constructed through it.
