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 new NSW Coastal IFOA is a plan to legalise wholesale destruction of forest biodiversity for a huge experiment in “regeneration forestry” that will remove all vegetation, expose the soil, incinerate anything and everything remaining after clear fell harvest, retaining only seed trees of the preferred eucalyptus species for the next crop of trees that, while growing will result in depletion of the available water in our catchments and increase catastrophic bushfire hazards across the landscape.

    Make no mistake … this is not ecologically sustainable forest management. The new Coastal IFOA is a grab for every stick of available timber at the expense of our natural heritage. The intention is clearly to eradicate wildlife entirely to make public forests the property of corporate interests. The cumulative negative impacts of the current native forestry regime (auspiced by the RFA’s) have been swept under the mat to avoid any public scrutiny.

    Our native forest habitats must not be sacrificed for short term industry complacency.
