Keep up to date with our work to protect native forests

Victoria’s globally important forest ecosystems are collapsing because of industrial clear-fell logging and climate-fuelled bushfires… 

But a faster, fairer transition into ecologically sound alternatives can support thriving regional communities.

Victoria’s ash forests store more carbon than any other studied forest in the world. They are a lifeline in the midst of global upheaval due to climate-driven extreme weather events and unprecedented species extinctions. But they're being converted into short-lived products like packaging and pallets every day.

If we support those promoting local solutions in affected regions and amplify their voices, we will be able to map a rapid transition pathway toward ecologically sound stewardship of forests that will become more politically and economically sensible for the government than continuing to subsidise the current native forest industry.
