Our Vision for Victoria's Forests

We organise alongside grassroots environment groups, First Nations custodians, and regional advocates for a faster, fairer transition for forest industry workers in order to end native forest logging and clear the way for environmentally sound and socially just alternatives. The state government’s current 2030 transition out of native forest logging is far too late for both forest ecosystems and affected communities. If we don't act now, Victoria's last remaining forests will be clear-felled to satisfy pulp contracts for cheap packaging – compromising the long-term wellbeing of all Victorians in a time of climate, ecological, and economic crisis.”

We believe that by supporting grassroots people in affected areas, we can end native forest logging while creating socially just outcomes for First Nations custodians, forest industry workers, regional communities, and all Victorians vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

End native forest logging to protect threatened ecosystems, endangered wildlife, cultural heritage and all Victorian communities vulnerable to climate impacts like bushfire and water insecurity. 

Support existing grassroots environment groups working tirelessly to defend their local state forests.

Amplify the voices of Sovereign First Nations custodians calling for self-determination, justice, and decision making power regarding the future management of Country.

Organise with regional workers promoting a fast, fair transition toward ecologically sound alternatives that will mitigate climate change, value biodiversity, and support thriving regional communities.

Fund citizen science equipment and expeditions so that community groups across the state can connect with the forest, identify and protect threatened species, and develop detailed knowledge of their local ecosystems.


 Pristine forest of the Little Dargo catchment in Victoria’s High Country has escaped the devastating impact of bushfires for decades. Friends of the Earth is working alongside local communities to make sure that these forests stay protected for future generations, while ensuring a just transition for the region
