Stop the state government logging burnt forests to protect vital habitat for wildlife

Our wildlife are struggling to survive in forests devastated by fire. In these areas one of the most important requirements is habitat - safe places to hide from predators. For ground-dwelling animals fallen logs are essential, and they are even more crucial in areas stripped of undergrowth by recent fires. 

The State government’s decision to allow forestry operations to remove these logs is incredibly short-sighted. As Professor David Lindenmayer AO, leading ecologist and conservation biologist writes:

“Research shows post-fire logging is the most damaging form of logging. Logging large old trees after a fire may make the forests unsuitable habitat for many wildlife species for up to 200 years.”

We call on the NSW Government to heed the clear advice about post-fire logging and immediately cease plans to remove important wildlife habitat from our forests.
