Keep up to date with our work to protect native forests

Victoria is finally transitioning away from industrial clear-fell logging. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to re-imagine our relationship to forested landscapes.

 

Now is the time to ensure permanent protection from future industrial exploitation & colonial resource extraction.

It's time to return forested Cultural Landscapes to First Nations custodians, empower transitioning communities to embrace regenerative livelihoods, and fund the active restoration & climate resilience of native forests.

The state government finally committed to transition away from industrial clear-felling logging of native forest in the east of Victoria on January 1, 2024.

Now is a critical moment in history. It’s time to call for the return of land to First Nations custodians & empower communities to participate in the care-taking of forests. Government must fund the active restoration of forests to help threatened species to recover & build the resilience of alpine ecosystems to climate change.


Together, we can support communities to create regenerative regional economies that leave no one behind.
