Description

Public Forum: Logging Our Wildlife Away - Macquarie Room, Parliament of NSW

How Government is destroying our national treasures and what you can do about it.

There are two million hectares of publicly owned state forests in NSW. What do you think is the best use of these forests?

  • Logging them for timber and woodchips

  • Logging and burning them for energy

  • Protecting them for wildlife, nature, water supplies and storing carbon

If you chose the latter, you’re in agreement with 90% of people polled in the north coast seats of Ballina and Lismore! So why are the threats to forests and wildlife escalating against community wishes?

Destructive public native forest logging allowed under the Regional Forest Agreements is set to be renewed for another 20 years by the NSW government without an independent scientific review and assessment of alternative options for forest use. Unless we stop them.

Please join us for this informative public forum to find out how the Commonwealth and State Coalition Governments are destroying our national treasures and what you can do about it.

Speakers

Hosted by Alex Greenwich, Independent MP for Sydney
