Protect our forests – end the subsidies!
Over seven years, NSW residents propped up the uneconomic native forest logging industry to the tune of $79 million.* This means without taxpayer handouts the destructive native forest logging industry would go out of business.
Native forests are incredibly valuable to NSW. They provide clean air and water and habitat for wildlife, they store carbon and provide places where we can enjoy nature, and yet our government continues to support native forest logging.
The Treasurer is responsible for providing subsidies for native forest logging, so let’s show him that the people want the subsidies to end.
Send an email to the NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet today.
