Victoria's iconic threatened species are under threat from industrial scale logging in their habitat. 

Join us at Treasury Gardens on National Threatened Species Day, for a creative and theatrical action calling on the state government to better protect threatened wildlife from VicForests logging operations. 

Volunteer citizen scientists have literally spent thousands of hours searching for legally protected species in habitat scheduled for logging and often forced logging to stop in some areas of legally protected habitat. 

It shouldn't be up to volunteers and the community to police VicForests and make sure our precious wildlife is given the protection afforded to it under the law! 

The Victorian government needs to stand up to VicForests and enforce the laws that protect these unique animals. 

We're planning to have a some fun and creatively highlight the hard work the community is putting in to save these species and the urgent need for the government to take action themselves!

Meet us in Treasury Gardens at 10am. There’ll be speakers, banners, costumes, creative props and a big loud message that we will take to government! We'll be finished the 11:30am, but if your keen to stick around we'll be setting up a Threatened Species embassy in Treasury Gardens for the day to raise awareness about the threats to our protected wildlife.

Will you come?
