Have you ever wondered what actions you can take to deliver the loudest and most powerful voice for nature?
You have the opportunity to find out at this information night, where we’ll discuss how to protect NSW native forests and secure stronger community rights in environmental decision-making.
After more than two thirds of the NSW native forest estate was burned during the Black Summer bushfires, it’s critical to protect remaining pockets of green, unburnt forest that provide refuge to native species. Without urgent action to protect koala habitat from industrial logging, koalas will soon be extinct in the wild in our state. Yet NSW laws explicitly reduce the right of communities to have a fair say in environmental decisions—including about native forest logging.
Together, we can secure strong environmental community rights that will require governments to be transparent and accountable when making decisions about the environment, resulting in better outcomes for people and nature.
