Rewrite the Future of Forests

Rewrite the Future of Forests

Every day in the South West of Western Australia, 10 football fields of Karri and Jarrah forests are being logged or cleared.

This is having devastating impacts on wildlife and releasing huge volumes of CO2 into the atmosphere. 

But, with the upcoming expiry of the current Forest Management Plan, we have an unmissable opportunity to protect the South West forests once and for all. 

Let WA's Environment Minister know that you want to see the full and secure protection of all remaining native forests in the South West. 

The next upcoming 10-year Forest Management Plan must be a Forest Conservation Plan with no logging whatsoever of our remaining, precious South West native forests.

Here are some dot points you might like to consider when writing your own email:

1. WA Labor is in a powerful position, with control of both Houses of Parliament and the upcoming expiry of the current Forest Management Plan, to act in the interests of the community to protect the South West forests. 

2. Nothing short of the full protection of what's left of the South West forests will suffice. 

3. 90% of the forests and woodlands in this Global Biodiversity Hotspot have been logged or cleared and what's left is critical for climate and biodiversity. 

4. The major compounding threats to the forests, particularly those associated with mining and inappropriate fire must be addressed under the FMP too - we want all native forests protected from logging and clearing in secure reserves and a full independent review of burning practices.

5. The expansion of the farm forestry sector would create jobs, grow timber locally, improve water quality and have multiple social and environmental benefits.
