Protect Native Forests from Logging

Open letter to candidates and MPs contesting the 2023 NSW state election

In the past year koalas, gang-gang cockatoos, and greater gliders officially became endangered species.

Yet logging companies still destroy 14,000 hectares of their spectacular native forest homes every year.

Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland have already committed to ending this archaic industry. NSW, however, still plunders its forests, and exports gum trees as woodchips. 

Even worse, the native forest logging industry is running at a loss and is propped up by taxpayer dollars.

It’s time NSW caught up with other states and protected native forests by ending logging.

We call on you to:

  • Stop wood-chipping native forests.
  • Protect the Great Koala National Park;
  • Commit to end native forest logging, with a plan to develop a sustainable timber plantations; and
  • Ban burning native forests to generate electricity.
