In this edition of Park Watch, we examine what the announcement by the Andrews Government to end logging in Victoria actually means for the future of our native forests – including those we are campaigning to protect in the state’s central west.

We feature articles on both the history and future of public land in Victoria – and cover the many challenges for our protected areas, including failure to deliver on parks funding and creation by our state government, various forms of encroachment by private tourism development, and the ever-increasing threat of pest plants and animals.

And for some summertime fun, make sure you check out the Special Species spread and test yourself with our Quiz!

As always we cover the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.
