UPDATE 4/5/2023: More than 6,700 signatures, and counting 👏
Victoria's ancient native forests are STILL being logged – killing animals and destroying habitat for endangered species.
Over a million hectares of land burned during the 2020 bushfires. The impact on forests and wildlife was devastating.
Just months after the fires were contained, Premier Andrews signed a deal with the Morrison Government to lock in another 10 years of logging in Victoria's native forests, exempting it from environmental laws.
And in 2022 when environmental groups took VicForests to court for illegal logging, the Labor Government changed laws to make illegal logging legal!
It's clear that this government will stop at nothing to keep logging Victoria's forests, despite worsening climate and extinction crises.
Logging native forests is not only extremely bad for wildlife, it's costing taxpayers money. Ending native forest logging now - instead of in 2030 - would save Victoria $205 million.
Our remaining native forests need to be protected as habitat for birds, endangered possums, gliders and insects.
Please add your name to ask the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and Environment Minister to immediately end logging in native forests and bring forward transition payments for loggers.
