North East Forest Alliance - NEFA

Come to our International Day of Forests Rally, March 21,

Coffs Harbour Forestry Office, 130 West High Street

10-11am. Bring banners and signs, colour and noise.

Speakers, music, street theatre.

This year's theme is Forests and Water... because forested catchments give clean water and old forests give more water! Forests hold the land together to prevent erosion and sedimentation of our waterways. Forests are homes to many of our incredible and unique wildlife....

And the Baird Government wants to bring in clearfelling on a massive scale and cut protections to streams.

Stand up and say NO! This Monday!


"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,

committed citizens can change the world; indeed, 

it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead

The North East Forest Alliance (NEFA) is a volunteer forest conservation group established in 1989 with the aims of protecting rainforest, oldgrowth forest, wilderness and threatened species. We have used all methods at our disposal to achieve these goals, including public education, lobbying, negotiation and non-violent direct action. While we have made significant gains towards these goals, we are not there yet. We still need your help.

We recognise that climate change is the biggest threat to our forests, their inhabitants and our lifestyles. We consider that enhancing the uptake and storage of carbon in forests is urgently required. Given that our attempts to achieve ecologically sustainable forest management have been an abject failure we are now seeking an end to logging of native forests on public land.
