Why We Started This Campaign
National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) initiated this campaign because we’re at a crossroads in history as the Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs) start to expire. The RFAs are the deals between the state and federal governments that allow industrial logging of public forests. They have meant that for the last 20 years logging has been going on in our forests that has driven many species to the brink of extinction.
What’s the plan?
Our goal is an end to industrial logging of our public forests. But our plan is for more than that: We want to increase public access to forests for recreation and nature-based tourism. We want to see regional communities benefit from forests economically, physically and emotionally. We want to protect the benefits that forests provide to people: like clean, plentiful water supplies and sucking up CO2. And we want to see our forests restored to health and the wildlife in them thrive.
How will we achieve this plan?
By building a broad alliance of regional communities, health, business and outdoor recreation groups. We will then approach all sides of state and federal government to make sure our voice is heard and put an end to the RFAs and Native Forest Logging.
