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.

    Logging will lead to run off into the ocean. It may damage the reef.

    We need trees.

    We should be joining the Queens corridor, not logging.

    We should be using hemp for a lot of things logs are being cut down for.

    It is our duty to conserve our forsts and biodiversity for the future. They do not belong to the Government to destroy at their pleasure!

    These are not my only concerns. I am very concerned about this government’s flagrant disregard for all biodiversity. The laws passed in 2016 have watered down any protection for biodiversity, including native vegetation. Your disregard for the marine environment is also alarming, for example, the north coast shark net ‘trials’. You don’t listen to science or the community and it is time you did!

    Have to stop these destructive and unsustainable practises for the profit of the few at the cost of the many.

    Protecting forests and habitat is our duty as care takers. Leaving a sustainable future for other life forms., so not proud of Australia’s greed and stupidity with enviroment. Shattering and so depressing

    Hard to believe forest protection is going backwards in the state and in this country. The COALition are certainly living up to their name. They are fossils and their ideas are completely out of touch with what is needed to slow down global warming. I #StandUp4Forests
