Nanna’s for Native Forests encourage public to take part in community survey to stop native forest logging
As a Nanna for Native Forests (NFNF) I am thrilled to see that the State Government is holding a survey and asking us, the public, if we want native forest logging to stop.
The survey is a lead-up to the next 10-year Forest Management Plan which is due for renewal in 2023 and it gives us a chance to push for the protection of our last remaining forests, which are being logged at 10 football fields per day.
The NFNF have been working hard over the past year to raise awareness of the logging and damage to our South West jarrah and karri forests.
We are now promoting the survey to all as it is a golden opportunity to have a say about our forests, flora and fauna habitats and the need to have access for purposes other than the cutting down of trees.
As many folk as possible need to fill out the survey to let the Government know that we want logging to cease.
There is a guide, provided by WAFA, available to assist those who want to answer the survey to the most advantage.
It can be accessed at www.wafa.org.au.
There are some contentious questions in the survey and to make it clear that we want all remaining native forests protected, people must be sure to say “it is never appropriate” that forest logging should occur, and agree with the statement that “no native forest harvesting should occur”.
