Save Tasmanian's Forests – Petition

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.

 

Sign this petition telling Tasmania's 'Premier for Climate Change', Peter Gutwein to stop this public policy madness.

 

Tasmania and the rest of the world need forests to stay intact for climate, wildlife, environment, and society

    I ask that no more additional logging occur.

    Our native forests are valuable for future generations not short term logging interests

    This breaks my heart. Why anyone thinks this is a good idea is beyond me. LEAVE THE OLD GROWTH FORESTS ALONE!
