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.

    The logging of public native forest must end, not be increased. Surely the massive bushfires must have at last taught us to value our remaining bushland.

    Appalled and embarrassed by the total lack of regard by all levels of Australian Government to this issue/. Mature trees take a century to grow – ‘planting a tree today’ has no impact on remediating the impact of logging mature irreplaceable trees and the wildlife they support.

    Please, please stop cutting down our forest and destroying our beautiful land and the habitat for so many creatures. When will this end. Pleas do what’s right and not what’s easy.

    I cannot believe that in the modern world we are even having this discussion. The value of forests for nutrient (including carbon) and moisture retention is bottomless. To destroy that and the habitat for millions of different creatures, especially hollows for marsupials and birds, is simply criminal. Logging creates more climate impact and less resilience in the area than is necessary, and anyone promote this is a crook. This is ridiculous and out-of-date thinking. A soulless vote-buying exercise.
