About The Event
Public Forum: Logging Our Wildlife Away - The Case For Change
Macquarie Room, Parliament of NSW
Destructive public native forest logging allowed under the Regional Forest Agreements looks set to be renewed for another 20 years by the NSW Government without an independent scientific review and assessment of alternative options for forest use. Proposed changes to NSW’s logging laws are driven by unrealistic timber supplies, which will see protected areas and exclusion zones opened to logging in a desperate attempt to prop up a failed industry.
However, a major report to be launched at this Public Forum will outline the Case For Change- economic, social and environmental- to achieve a genuinely sustainable future for NSW public native forests.
The Forum will include speakers addressing the following topics:
1. The impacts of native timber logging on our environment and our wildlife, including iconic species such as the Koala
2. The economic contribution of native timber logging in NSW
3. The case for change: why and how.
4. The support for change: beyond the environmental movement.
Please join us for this informative public forum to find out why and how we can achieve a more sustainable future for our native public forests and what you can do to help.
Hosted by Alex Greenwich, Independent MP for Sydney.
