PUT A STOP TO LOGGING IN THE NAMBUCCA STATE FOREST

Logging has begun in the unburnt southern section of Nambucca State Forest in New South Wales. There is a plan to log most of the remaining forest this year.

Nambucca Valley Conservation Association spokesperson Lyn Orrego said the majority of the community is against logging of this coastal public forest.

“It begins just as the Nambucca State Forest is recovering from the drought and after most of it avoided last summer’s devastating bushfires. This forest is valued by residents and tourists for recreation and is an important refuge for wildlife”, she said.

New scientific research shows that logging increases fire risk for of up to 40 years.

“Some patches of rainforest, old growth, rare forest, and swamp sclerophyll forest, which is a threatened ecological community, are protected, but will become exposed islands with logging taking place all around them.

Species that were threatened even before the bushfires include the sooty owl, masked owl, powerful owl, grey-headed flying fox, koala, little bentwing bat and yellow-bellied glider. The forest contains high quality koala habitat and glossy black cockatoo feed trees.

Public forests should be for the public good. Keeping our native forests and letting them grow old would also reduce as much as a third of our greenhouse gas emissions.

Please sign and share this petition with as many people you can so we can send a clear message to the Government that logging the Nambucca State Forest is unacceptable and not approved by the local community.
