Save our Old Growth Forests

Our ancient forests are under threat. The NSW Government is planning to allow logging in more than 15,000 hectares of protected old-growth and high-conservation-value public forests.

 
 

 

To the Environment and Energy Minister Matt Kean, Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes, Deputy Premier John Barilaro and Special Minister of State Don Harwin:

The NSW Government is planning to allow logging in more than 15,000 hectares of protected old-growth and high-conservation-value public forests

More than 29,000 hectares of previously protected old-growth forests on private land have already been opened up to logging in recent years.

These rare and important forests have been protected for almost 20 years. They store huge amounts of carbon and provide irreplaceable habitat for many threatened species, including koalas, gliders, quolls, frogs and owls.

I call on you to:

  1. Ensure no areas of forest currently protected will be opened up to logging.

  2. End the remapping and rezoning of old-growth and rainforest on public and private land.

  3. Conserve native forests to protect biodiversity, store carbon and provide new tourism and recreational opportunities.
