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.

    Disgusted that a government would even think of allowing logging old-growth forests. Pure environmental vandalism, nothing less!

    There are other materials which can be used besides timber for everything…and with regard to space for housing… wall to wall sub divisions is not a planet saving strategy….

    I am member of treesisters (a global network aiming to reforest the tropics) and to quote the founder, Clare Dubois “We need to become a restorer species” we need reforestation, not deforestation!!

    If forests do not survive in a healthy state, we surely will not either.

    Australia already has some of the worst extinction and landclearing rates in the world. Please leave these precious forests standing for our children and grandchildren to enjoy..
