I care for Victoria's natural environment and hope you do too. Now that you are premier of Victoria I'll be looking for an announcement from you to create a Great Forest National Park, which will protect the forests of the Central Highlands and Yarra Ranges.
This park will provide a sanctuary for the people of Melbourne, help save the Leadbeater's Possum from extinction, and protect Melbourne's drinking water catchments while creating long-term, sustainable jobs.
Less than 90 minutes drive from Melbourne, a Great Forest National Park would be a new community recreation resource and a legacy for future generations.
With your leadership it will also help modernise our paper and timber industry by transitioning it to plantation-based feedstocks.
Please commit to creating the Great Forest National Park.
