Report exposes Labor's lawless logging

To mark National Threatened Species day, Friends of the Earth Melbourne has released a report documenting 27 unlawful native forest logging operations in protected threatened species habitat and rainforest. 

These logging operations have occurred under the Andrews Labor government.

The Lawless logging report has been prepared by FoE in partnership with forest survey groups Goongerah Environment Centre (GECO) and Fauna and Flora Research Collective (FFRC).

Victoria's forests and threatened species are in crisis. Logging in critically important habitat is pushing endangered wildlife towards extinction.

Legal protections for Victoria's wildlife are not being followed by VicForests and are not being enforced by the Victorian Environment Department.

Join with us to call on Environment Minister Lily D'Ambrosio to enforce our environment laws and protect Victoria's threatened wildlife from native forest logging.
