Living in a Tree for a Year, This Is Miranda Gibson's Story

A year ago this week 30 year old Miranda Gibson climbed a Eucalyptus tree in the Southern forests of Tasmania, South West Australia and hasn't touched the ground since.

Suspended on a makeshift platform 60 meters in the air, Miranda demands protection for the ancient forests that surround her, and through a clever mix of social media and pure determination is focusing global attention on her cause.

Speaking with Miranda from her Observation Tree I learned this about her epic tree sit.

To learn more about Miranda please visit her blog and join her on the 14th December 2012 as she celebrates the Observer Trees first birthday with a live video broadcast.
