This event will be a zoom 'rally' with guest speakers sharing about the values of the Tasmanian forests, the actions you can be involved in and a stand together (virtually) to say SAVE TASSIE'S FORESTS.
The Wilderness Society, The Tree Projects, Blue Derby Wild and Bob Brown Foundation are organising a virtual action calling for secure protection of Tasmania's native forests.
April 8 2020 is when 356 000 hectares of forests that should be in reserves become available for logging. These forests, called Future Potential Production Forests by the Tasmanian Liberal Government, have been in a moratorium since 2012.
Logging forest nature reserves. With proven High Conservation Values (HCVs). In a climate and extinction crisis. On top of the 800,000 hectares of public state forests Suss Timber Tasmania already logs. It's an outrage.
Worse still, over $400 million of public money was used to compensate the logging industry, which agreed to protect these areas in exchange. But now it says it wants to log them anyway and Premier Gutwein is only too happy to help.
These threatened forests include:
• 100 000 hectares in takayna / Tarkine
• vast stretches of on Tasmania's east coast from Blue Tier in the North to surrounds of Ben Lomond and Douglas-Apsley National Parks.
• Swift Parrot habitat of Wielangta and Bruny Island.
• Tracts of the Great Western Tiers.
Be part of our virtual rally with many guest speakers all telling Tasmania's 'Premier for Climate Change', Peter Gutwein to stop this public policy madness.
Tasmania and the rest of the world needs forests to stay intact for climate, wildlife, environment and society.
