Save Dalgarup Forest and its wildlife - Stop the Logging!

The western part of Dalgarup forest was destined for permanent protection in a proposed National Park, but in just 2 weeks it could all be gone. 

Dalgarup Forest, west of Bridgetown, has been removed from the proposed Dalgarup National Park so that it can be logged.

Save Dalgarup Forest and its wildlife - Stop the Logging!

The western part of Dalgarup forest was destined for permanent protection in a proposed National Park, but in just 2 weeks it could all be gone. 

Dalgarup Forest, west of Bridgetown, has been removed from the proposed Dalgarup National Park so that it can be logged.

Critically endangered Western Ringtail Possums, as well as Chuditch, Quokkas, Phascogales, Quendas and all three species of Black Cockatoos live and breed in this forest.

But, 20-tonne logging machines are crashing through this ancient jarrah forest right now, destroying habitat for an extraordinary number and diversity of threatened wildlife.

The majority of the wood sold from this forest will become firewood and charcoal.

Native forests are worth more standing for climate and for life. 

Stand up for Dalgarup forest and its wildlife!

Write to the Ministers for Forestry and the Environment today, ask them to immediately stop the logging of Dalgarup forest and complete the transition of the timber industry out of native forests.

Writing your own email is doubly powerful.

Here are some tips to help you out:

  • Native forest logging is pushing wildlife towards extinction;

  • Dalgarup Forest is unusually rich in wildlife and is home to all three species of Black Cockatoo, as well as Quokkas, Chuditch, Quenda, Western Brush Wallabies, Brush-tailed Phascogales and the Critically Endangered Western Ringtail Possum;

  • It should be against the law to log forests that are habitat to endangered wildlife. Studies have shown that logging kills Western Ringtail Possums - both during the logging of their forest and afterwards when foxes and cats move in; 

  • Dalgarup Forest has been carved out of the Proposed National Park so it can be logged - it must be put back in to the National Park and protected;

  • The majority of the wood from jarrah forest logging becomes firewood, charcoal and mill-waste. 
  • All native forests are worth more standing - too much has been logged and we must protect what's left for climate, communities, water and wildlife.
