Our parks exist to protect the wildlife, landscapes and culture we love – not to feed commercial pulp and saw mills.

But two state departments are in cahoots to do exactly that. Forest Fire Management Victoria and VicForests are tearing up and removing parts of the popular Dandenong Ranges National Park.

They’ve begun “salvage logging” the habitat of threatened native wildlife in forests recovering from storm events.

Yellow-bellied and Greater Gliders, Powerful and Sooty Owls all have records in and adjacent to the proposed logging operations.

Why? So VicForests can feed its unsustainable pulp and timber contracts at the expense of vulnerable native wildlife.

With your help we can protect our shared wildlife, landscapes and culture from state-sponsored exploitation.

Send your elected leaders a message today. You can include your own words for more impact.
