End Native Forest Logging in NSW

More than 100 political leaders, academics, environment and climate experts have signed our open letter calling on the NSW Premier to immediately end all logging of koala habitat in public native forests.

Prominent signatories to our open letter include: former Liberal leader Dr John Hewson; former Greens leader Bob Brown; Professor Lesley Hughes, Councillor for the Climate Council and Lead Author in the IPCC’s 4th and 5th Assessment Report; former RBA Governor Bernie Fraser; businessman Geoff Cousins; and environmentalist Virginia Young.

The NSW Government has failed to gazette the promised Great Koala National Park and will not end logging until forests can generate carbon credits.

A newly released report from the Australia Institute's Walkley Award-winning Senior Fellow Stephen Long, raises serious questions about logging in NSW, the integrity of carbon credits and their use as offsets.

The NSW Government has promised to act. Our open letter asks the Premier to do so in a way that respects the science.

To Premier Chris Minns

Native forest logging continues to devastate koala habitat in NSW.

The Labor Party committed to protecting over 300,000ha of land for koalas in 2015. Yet the NSW Government has failed to gazette the promised Great Koala National Park and will not end logging until forests can generate carbon credits.

Research by the Australia Institute and others has raised serious issues with the integrity of carbon credits and their use as offsets.

We, the undersigned, call on the NSW Government to immediately end all logging in public native forests and koala habitat.

No delay. No excuses. No carbon offsets.
