Last summer’s bushfires resulted in the death of an estimated half a billion native animals and released millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. 

Despite the damage, the Victorian Government is continuing to log native forests, pushing our native animals closer to extinction.

‘The people of Brunswick want to protect and restore nature – not see it logged for profit.’

It’s not too late to save our native forests, but we must act now.

Our unique birds, animals, plants and ecosystems are found nowhere else in the world. Yet for generations, state governments have supported land clearing, logging and killing wildlife in the name of profit or ‘sport’.

Victoria’s wildlife is under more pressure than ever, from industry, agriculture, non-native weeds and animals, worsening climate change, droughts and bushfires.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

With your support we could:

  • Incorporate Aboriginal practices in Victorian land management
  • Create thousands of jobs clearing weeds and managing introduced animals
  • Employ a workforce of people to plant trees, regenerate bushfire-affected forest and restore habitat for native species
  • Dedicate funding for research and action to protect and revive species facing extinction
  • Transition to plantation logging instead of destroying native forests while supporting forest workers
  • Create stronger environmental laws
  • End duck hunting

Add your name and join the campaign to protect and restore our special places and iconic plants and animals.

Protecting Forest Activists

Recently in parliament I made a speech denouncing the government's concerning new anti-forest protest bill. This bill will give authorities new, broad search and seizure powers, and discretion to restrict free movement in our forests based merely on suspicion that someone may commit an offence in the future. Plus, peaceful...


Brunswick Survey Response: Fixing Victoria's Healthcare System

In a year with federal and state elections and with a big increase in healthcare spending, we should talk about how we could improve our health system, so it’s not always struggling to cope. That’s why I asked people in my electorate to tell me about their personal experiences with...


Why isn’t it fixed yet?

Making Sydney Road a more inviting place to ride a bike would improve north-south trips for people who already ride, and hopefully encourage more people to travel by bike.  I was recently asked about the work I’ve done on Sydney Rd, and where this issue was up to. This is...
