Victorian Greens spokesperson for forests Samantha Dunn MP says it is no surprise that Vicforests are off the hook for again destroying protected habit.
"Any direct evidence of illegal logging on the Errinundra Plateau has most likely already gone to the pulp mill. It’s no wonder the Minister for the Environment says the evidence is inconclusive,” Ms Dunn said.
"The problem comes from Vicforests doing the habitat assessments, while collecting the profits from logging as well.
"There's a clear conflict of interest. It’s putting the fox in charge of the hen house.
