Victoria's Native Forests are Being Logged to Extinction
Logging is still taking place all over Victoria in unburnt areas of forest, and in fire-affected forests in East Gippsland. Despite the unprecendented bushfires, the Andrews Labor Government continues log native forests for Reflex copy paper.
In the face of a climate emergency, biodiversity crisis, declining habitat for threatened species, devastating bushfires, threats to water security, and the ongoing destruction of the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri, Gunaikurnai and Taungurung people, the importance of protecting and returning these forests to traditional custodianship cannot be overstated.
Most Victorians want to see an immediate end to native forest logging. If allowed to continue for the next 10 years as announced in November last year, these ecosystems will be logged to extinction.
Forest Conservation Victoria is a community/volunteer run, grass-roots group that are taking a stand against the destructive logging that is happening all over Victoria. We support communities to use non-violent, peaceful direct action to stop logging, and bring attention to the issue.
