END LOGGING IN VICTORIA'S NATIVE FORESTS

Since the devastating fires that decimated large parts of Eastern Victoria, I’ve heard from hundreds of Brunswick residents who want to see what is left of Victoria’s native forests protected immediately.

Despite the fires, Victoria’s forests continue to be logged, burned and sold for a pittance by a government-run agency. What’s more, our precious native animals, like the Leadbeater's Possum and the Greater Glider are on the brink of extinction. Most of their habitat burned, or logged. 

Victoria's native forest continues to be bulldozed and burnt

You cannot be a progressive government while simultaneously logging Victoria’s native forests.

‘On two trips in 2019, l saw broad areas of these forests bulldozed to the ground and tonnes of unused wood burned. Across the state, the Victorian State Government is subsidising clearfell logging on an industrial scale, turning precious native forests into paper.’

With your help, I’ll keep up the fight to end logging in Victoria’s native forests and create the Great Forest National Park. This new park will protect our birds, insects and mammals, provide local jobs through domestic and international tourism, protect habitat, keep carbon out of the atmosphere, and preserve our city water supply.

It's time to protect Victoria's native forests that provide us with clean air and water, a home for endangered species, and boost tourism for local communities.
