Report exposes illegal logging in Victoria

image 7th Sep 2017 — Friends of the Earth Melbourne has released a report documenting 27 unlawful native forest logging operations in protected threatened species habitat and rainforest.

Victoria's forests and threatened species are in crisis. Logging in critically important habitat is pushing endangered wildlife towards extinction. Legal protections for Victoria's wildlife are not being followed by VicForests and are not being enforced by the Victorian Environment Department.

Join with Friends of the Earth to call on Environment Minister Lily D'Ambrosio to enforce our environment laws and protect Victoria's threatened wildlife from native forest logging.
