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.

    After so many years of lobbying for forest protection and this opening up of forests for logging is outrageous…the environment, the animals, the future..come on , protect our forests from further decimation through destructive logging and its practice. Thank you

    Old growth forest is irreplaceable….it constitutes our very lungs…we need it desparately, that and clean, clear pure water….is MOST important for survival…if we can’t breathe, then lumber and gold is useless

    why would you deny future generations the beauty of old growth forests, they are the lungs of the earth and are home to native flora and fauna….there are no second chances here, once it’s gone, it is gone forever

    Such unbelievable short sightedness. We have already lost 40% of forests, and what remains is generally highly fragmented. What is this country going to be like in another two hundred years time?

    Old growth forests are wonderful rich mosaics which are irreplaceable. Where will beauty be found? What will the health of the natural resources and eco-processes that give us life, fresh water, fresh air and healthy ecosystems be like? And what of the birds, animals and habitats. Australia has the worst extinction record for mammals in the last couple of centuries. These animals are gone forever.

    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.
