Bob Brown Foundation supports Oldina residents concerns about impacts of logging on their community

Today the Bob Brown Foundation has responded to a request for assistance from members of the Oldina community in the face of imminent logging of 'The Last Stand'.

'The Last Stand' remains the only patch of public native forest in a sea of plantations in the region and is vital to the conservation of wildlife relying on this remnant forest.

"We have been moved by this call for help from this small regional community facing down the juggernaut of the native forest logging industry, and we will stand with these brave people", said Campaigner Scott Jordan.

We join with the people of Oldina in their call to halt the destruction of these forests which are so important to the local people here. Sus Timbers Tasmania should be listening to the pleas from Oldina to not begin logging there," said Mr Jordan.

    Wow it just seems inconceivable that local people take the forests for granted as though they are an endless resource. That they give no importance to the native creatures that live in an ecosystem. Haha- maybe the same sort of people who need to go out and buy copious amounts of toilet paper for My Sharona.
