Tasmanian tree-sitter claims recordThe Australian reports that an icy Tasmanian winter won't stop Miranda Gibson setting an Australian record for a tree-sitting protest. Ms Gibson will reach 209 days perched 60m from the ground in the Tyenna Valley, in southern Tasmania, on Tuesday. Environmental group Still Wild Still Threatened says that betters the 208 days Manfred Stephens spent atop a tree near Cairns in 1995. The world record is regarded as the 738 days spent by Julia 'Butterfly' Hill in a California redwood forest between 1997-99.
