Australia imports illegal timber that is directly linked to biodiversity loss, human rights abuses and climate change. Illegal logging is also pushing critically endangered wildlife species close to extinction. This is unacceptable. Please take the urgently needed action to stop it.

----------------
Dear Member of Parliament,

I urge you to please support The Illegal Logging Prohibition Bill 2011 & Ban the importation of illegally logged timber into Australia.

Australia imports illegal timber that is directly linked to biodiversity loss, human rights abuses and climate change.

Illegal logging is also pushing critically endangered wildlife species close to extinction.

Why is it that Politicians around the world always attempt to delay issues like this?

This is unacceptable. Please take the urgently needed action to stop it.

Sincerely,
