The EPA has given its approval to ramp up native logging to as much as 10,000 AFL sized football ovals per year (1,000sq km over 10 years). That is twice as much logging as they are currently doing now.
Please sign this CCWA on-line petition.
Also see the WA Forest Alliance website for information on how to APPEAL against the EPA’s decision. Here is a GROUNDS OF APPEAL EXAMPLE.

We cannot allow the State Government to destroy our forests just to keep a few hundred unsustainable jobs limping along in a barely profitable industry. It just doesn’t make sense. The long term effects on our economy due to increased deforestation will be far greater than keeping these few jobs going. Agriculture will suffer further due to decreased rainfall and tourism will also be affected. See this recent article
Native logging must end, not be increased! Please help
