No Rainforest Logging - Sign Our Petition

It’s an outrage for rainforests in Tasmania. The Hodgman Liberal government is pushing ahead to log rainforests that were reserved decades ago. Rainforests in Tasmania are exceptionally slow growing and this government is moving fast to cause an ecological catastrophe. 

Logging in Tasmania’s rainforests will have damaging and far-reaching impacts on the ecology and wildlife that depends on the ecosystem for habitat and the climate.  It will favour a wasteful, heavily subsidised and declining logging industry, at the expense of the modern Tasmanian economy that relies on the wild and scenic beauty of the island. 




Aswell as rainforests across Tasmania, Australia’s largest tract of Gondwanan temperate rainforest in takayna / Tarkine is threatened by this move. The government wants to log rainforests that have been previously protected from logging.  Including 28 reserves that stretch across 295 700 hectares in the Tarkine. This is an attack on the 37 years of conservation outcomes that underpin nature based tourism in the Tarkine region.




That is alarming enough and it gets worse, the government has identified in their plan that these forests are habitat for threatened wildlife and flora, including the Wedge-tailed Eagle, Masked Owl, Quolls, Grey Goshawk and Tasmanian Devil.

Rainforests are becoming increasingly rare globally, threatened by logging and other human activities and need ongoing secure conservation protection.  

In 2014 the Hodgman government introduced new legislation that weakened the status of regional reserves and conservation areas and allowed for logging in these reserves.

    The Mass Murdering of our native wildlife due to Mass Logging makes me sad and sick.

    This has to stop as we don’t have fresh air to breath anymore.

    We must stop this governments criminal acts.

    Propaganda spread by the self-involved will be the end of us all.

    I visited Trowutta Arch yesterday and was horrified at how close logging was going on to this natural wonder. The sound of machinery split the air as I was walking through this magical old forest, so much of it must already have been destroyed…
