The Bob Brown Foundation has welcomed 250 doctors appealing to Premier Gutwein for protection of Tasmania's forests in the face of the global biodiversity and climate crisis.
"We say thank you to the two hundred and fifty doctors who have taken a stand, putting their patient's futures ahead of the profits of the woodchip barons", said takayna/Tarkine Campaigner Scott Jordan.
"If only the Premier would take health advice and immediately declare protection of Tasmania's biodiverse and carbon rich native forests, and a permanent end to native forest logging. We concur with the Doctors that protecting native forests will make a historical contribution to constrain carbon emissions responsible for climate change and protect our health",
"After all, it's just what the doctor ordered".
