Fridays4Forests 10/6/22 - Events Across Australia

This week #Fridays4Forests reached new heights holding simultaneous actions across Australia from the Mid North Coast and Northern Rivers NSW all the way to The Kimberleys in WA

Hyland Park Fridays4Forests - Forest Ecology Alliance

"Each Friday, since early June 2020, members of Forest Ecology Alliance (FEA) have gathered on this corner in Hyland Park. The idea was first suggested by Susan Jenvey. Georgette Allen soon got to work to spread the word in our community. It was originally called Friday Fitness for Forests as we did yoga near our Forest banners.
We soon shortened the name to Fridays for Forests. We also gathered roadside for Wednesday for Wirrimbi (a forest in Nambucca State Forest).
Many thanks to all those who have regularly attended our Friday morning vigil. We vary what we do each week, but mostly we stand with our signs and wave to passers by. One day last year we recorded and tallied how many locals beep their horn or wave in support and were surprised to realise there were 377 Forest supporters in ONE hour. We love to wave to regulars, who occasionally stop to chat about current Forest actions, eg the Pre-School bus loaded with children, high school students walking on their way to school, car pools on their way to work.
We are pleased that NEFA have launched their Friday for Forests campaign. We hope that many others join in the movement each week to help spread the word about forest protection in their own communities.
All members of our community are welcome to join us on the corner from 8.30am to 9.30am - and for a morning tea chat afterwards. This week we were so honoured that Catherine Jones and Cath Eaglesham, dedicated forest protectors from BEC, brought their fabulous new sign with them."
Meanwhile in Broome...
Fridays4Forests in the Kimberleys

 

Sean was a long way from home but still thinking about our threatened forests found a local to commune with. He says;
"Two fat bastards #StandUp4Forests 😉🌳
These boab trees around Broome Courthouse are not the biggest or oldest specimens but they are still pretty impressive and very slimming to stand next to.
Wherever you are celebrate #Fridays4Forests with me every Friday 🐨💚"

Camira State Forest Home to Endangered Koalas

18/02/22: Camira State Forest - Dalian Pugh Leads Search for Endangered Koalas

This week around a dozen Fridays4Forests protectors met in Camira State Forest (west of the Summerland Way, between Casino and Grafton) with renowned environmentalist and President of the North East Forest Alliance, Dailan Pugh (OAM) to follow up on his work there surveying for our endangered koalas. Dailan has been studying the unburnt section of Camira which is imminently threatened with logging and found considerable evidence of a significant koala colony there.

Gateway to the Rainforest Hosts Fridays4Forests

Over a dozen NR locals gathered in Kyogle this Friday 11th Feb as Friday4Forests plan how to protect native forests in the local
district.

The group supported today’s declaration from Federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley that our Koalas are endangered & called upon State & Federal
Governments to act urgently to protect our Koala’s forest homes.

Fridays4Forests have been performing Citizen Science surveys across the Northern Rivers for over a year now & have found numerous examples of
where Koalas are clinging to life in the face of the threat of logging.

Friday4Forests are calling for the protection of all our Public Native Forests & the creation of a native forest reserve system with a sustainable plantation timber industry.

The group agreed to meet on 18th February at Camira State Forest to explore this area which is reported as imminently threatened by logging.
