Please sign this petition now opposing the Government's proposal to make large areas of protected oldgrowth forests available for logging (and share it as widely as possible)
To Gladys Berejiklian (Premier of NSW),
Your government has recently announced its intention to drastically weaken the logging rules (Integrated Forestry Operations Approval - IFOA) to remove numerous protections for NSW's threatened species, Koalas, oldgrowth forest and fish.
The people of NSW call upon you to:
  1. Stop the NSW Government proceeding with these draconian changes.
  2. Ensure that public forests are managed for the public good (ie: tourism, environmental repair, carbon sequestration and storage, wildlife habitat and provision of clean, abundant water)
  3. Stop planning to log areas protected as habitat for threatened species, Koalas, oldgrowth forest, and stream buffers. 
  4. Stop increasing logging intensity and legalising clearfell logging along the North Coast of NSW.
  5. Stop propping up the rapacious native forest logging industry at the cost of species extinction, logging dieback, reduced stream flows and water quality decline.
  6. End the logging of public native forest and complete the transition of the timber industry to 100% plantations.

    We have to halt the consistent degradation of our natural environment. ENOUGH!

    It is already shameful the way i see my local forest logged. Natural forest replaced with plantation. It is only the morally corrupt and vacuous who could possibly think it ok to treat the reminants of our natural world this way. Out of sight and out of mind.

    NSW State forests are a resource for the commons, not for the few! Your Government has been accelerating down the road of destruction of this valuable resource. Please stop this lunacy and stop all logging in NSW State forests.

    Our forests need its organic matter retained to maintain soil and plant health , and protect soil from erosion after logging. Breaking this cycle negates any carbon substitution gains of using this material.

    Public state native forests for flora, fauna & nature lovers, not for plunder
