It's National Threatened Species Day and we have a new Environment Minister in Federal Parliament.
It's critically important we let the new minister know that we need strong protections for threatened species, particularly in forests that are subject to logging.
Please send an email to the new minister Melissa Price, calling on her to:
- scrap the dodgy deals (Regional Forest Agreements) that provide native forest logging with an exemption from Federal environment law.
- ensure threatened species recovery plans are based on robust science
- ensure the status of threatened species is determined by scientific experts NOT politicians.
- support the protection of Victoria's forest dependant threatened species by supporting the Great Forest National Park and Emerald Link proposals.
