End Native Forest Logging Petition
Koala numbers in NSW have been declining for decades. Since the 1990s, one in four koalas were lost, with habitat loss the leading cause. Then the Black Summer bushfires killed an estimated 8,000 koalas in NSW, leaving only 20,000 remaining in the wild.
We, the undersigned, call on the Minister for the Energy and the Environment, Minister for Planning and Public Spaces and the Minister for Agriculture and Western NSW to save koalas in NSW from extinction by ensuring the revised Private Native Forestry and Local Land Service codes:
- refer to scientifically robust and comprehensive mapping of koala habitat and populations across NSW;
- protect all koala habitat from destruction on private land; and
- enable restoration of koala habitat and local populations.
