Let Tanja Forest Live!

TANJA FOREST abounds with wildlife, including over a dozen threatened species like the Powerful Owl, Yellow Bellied Glider, Glossy Black Cockatoo, Eastern Pygmy Possum, Sooty Owl, Swift Parrot & Gang Gang Cockatoo.
- Logging is planned for within 40m of the estuary wetlands at Mogareeka.
► Areas of logged forest will be visible from Tathra & Bega.
► Bushfire risk to both towns will escalate as the regrowth forest becomes more dry and dense. Evidence from the Victorian bushfires shows that dense young regrowth forest is much more fire prone than old, moist, unlogged forest.
► Aboriginal sites in the forest will be put at risk by destructive logging machinery.
► Soil disturbance and forest degradation releases millions of tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere.
► The forest was the venue for the inaugural inaugural Tathra Enduro Mountain Bike Race which has the potential to attract many visitors to Tathra and the Bega Valley.
►Native forest logging in NSW loses between $15 and $8 million a year for State taxpayers and converts priceless assets into low value, high volume products such as woodchips.
► The loss of amenity and environmental degradation of the area are a high price to pay for 5,000 of woodchips valued at less than $16 per tonne.
