Native forests play a critical role in mitigating climate change and slowing the rate of wildlife extinction, however here in Tasmania the government ignores the climate emergency and global extinction crisis and sanctions ongoing forest destruction for woodchips and timber for the controversial Borneo logging giant, Ta Ann.
