The 2018 state election is only weeks away.

There is no sign that political parties are serious about creating new parks – so we are ramping up our campaign to protect our forests, threatened wildlife and our unique marine and coast.

Our eastern forests are in dire need of protection, with intensive logging continuing in Victoria’s Central Highlands, East Gippsland and the Central West in critically endangered wildlife habitat, old growth forests and rainforests.

Now logging is taking place in western Victoria in the last small fragments of forests that remain, including Mount Cole near Ballarat.

There are many threats to Victoria’s coast, including the public beaches of Belfast Coastal Reserve being invaded by commercial racehorse trainers.

We need to put the pressure on right now and let the government know that voters in marginal electorates and across Victoria want better protection for nature across the state.

Will you join the campaign? There are lots of ways to get involved. We need you to help us:

  • letterbox flyers in your local area
  • letterbox in strategic seats (some suburban travel involved).
  • hand out flyers at train stations and busy locations in key electorates
  • help in the VNPA Office preparing campaign material
  • join in the campaign on social media
