Gemma Tillack directs the Rainforest Action Network's (RAN) Agribusiness campaign, which is addressing one of the main drivers of rainforest destruction in Indonesia: industrial palm oil. Prior to this position, Gemma worked for 10 years for The Wilderness Society in Australia, and played a key role in the campaigns that contributed to Gunns Limited’s decision to transition out of native forest logging in Tasmania. For the past two years Gemma has been involved in negotiations that lead to the signing of the $274 million Tasmanian Forest Intergovernmental Agreement (TFIGA). Gemma has a background in environmental science and community organizing.
