Keep up to date with our work to protect native forests

Victoria is transitioning away from clear-fell logging, finally protecting critical carbon sinks and precious forest habitat.

Now is the time to ensure permanent protection from industrial exploitation, advocate for ecologically responsible forest stewardship, and return land to First Nations custodians.

The Victorian government has committed to transition out of native forest logging by January 1, 2024. Ending logging is climate action.

Now is a critical moment in history for First Nations justice and forest restoration. It’s time for all Victorians to participate in ecologically responsible land stewardship that allows threatened species and forest ecosystems to recover from logging and build resilience to climate change.

Now is a sensitive time for affected workers. Together, we can support communities to transition and create regenerative regional economies that leave no one behind.
