Level the Playing Field - Not Native Forests

Did you know that logging of native forests in Tasmania and New South Wales, under Regional Forest Agreements, are exempt from federal environment protection laws?

Australia Institute research shows that logging our remaining native forests makes no sense economically, socially or ecologically.

Native forest logging companies should be made to operate under federal environmental laws like everybody else, including the requirement to protect endangered species from extinction

Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek could even the playing field and remove the special exemption for logging from our federal environment laws.

Your politicians are currently considering this issue in parliament.

Now is the time to protect Tasmania and New South Wales’ irreplaceable native forests and threatened species.

It’s time to ensure everyone is playing by the same rules by removing the special exemption for logging from our federal environment laws.

Tell your local elected representatives to protect our natural environment by making everyone play by the same rules.

To The Parliament of Australia

Native forest logging in Tasmania and NSW is exempt from federal environment protection laws, thanks to Regional Forest Agreements.

Native forest logging companies should be made to operate under federal environmental laws like everybody else, including the requirement to protect endangered species from extinction.

We, the undersigned, call on the Parliament to remove the special exemption for logging from our federal environment laws.
