The central west national parks must be legislated now. Will you give today?

In June 2021 our elected leaders in the State Government said they would create new national parks in Victoria’s central west forests.

But as of November 2022, no legislation has been seen. These beautiful and significant forests are still vulnerable.

In fact, the 50,000 hectares of bushland that is home to many threatened plants and wildlife is at risk because the government has not fulfilled its promise to the Victorian people.

Providing the protection these forests need is now beyond urgent.

Parts of the central west should already be protected from logging in national parks. But they aren’t.

The promised Wombat-Lerderderg, Mount Buangor, and the Pyrenees national parks, and other reserves including the Wellsford Regional Park near Bendigo, have not been created.

Unbelievably, logging continues in the Wombat and Mt Cole forests today.

And Greater Gliders, Powerful Owls and other threatened plants and wildlife are at risk. Right Now.

That’s why we need your help.
