In this edition of Park Watch, we expose VicForests logging destruction of the Wombat Forest – in areas that the Victorian Government committed to protecting in a national park.
Meanwhile our recent citizen science survey reveals high densities of threatened Greater Gliders in the path of VicForests bulldozers.
We report back on the public inquiry on plans for mountain bike track in Yarra Ranges National Park in which our legal team and expert witnesses clearly demonstrated the risks to the natural values.
And our Executive Director Matt Ruchel gives an overview of the state budget’s investment in national parks – and how it does not match recommendations for funding increases from multiple Parliamentary Inquiries.
And as always we have a range of other articles covering the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.
