Why this is important to me

Western Australia's spectacular karri and jarrah forests grow nowhere else in the world and they are under threat.
Logging destroys ancient ecosystems and habitat for threatened wildlife. The logging industry operates at a loss and is costing taxpayers millions of dollars in grants and subsidies.
It also releases massive volumes of carbon into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change.
The vast majority of the wood from our forests is sold as woodchips, firewood and railway sleepers.
Our forests are worth more as carbon stores, habitat for unique and threatened wildlife and places we love, than as woodchips, firewood and railway sleepers.
It's time that we protect our magnificent forests in WA!
