  • Sign the parliamentary petition on logging of public native forests. - Due September 1, 2022 Event Details

    Public native forest logging is pushing iconic species like the koala, swift parrot and greater glider towards extinction in NSW.
    Reports show our state forests can generate far more income through their protection than from logging, through recreation, tourism and carbon abatement.
    If you are a NSW resident, please sign this petition asking the Legislative Assembly to:
    1. Develop a plan to transition the native forestry industry to 100% sustainable plantations by 2024.2. In the interim, place a moratorium on public native forest logging until the regulatory framework reflects the recommendations of the leaked NRC report. 3. Immediately protect high-conservation value forests through gazettal in the National Parks estate.4. Ban use of native forest materials as biomass fuel.
