Stop logging in the Great Koala National Park

You might have heard that after a decade of community pressure the new Labor government committed to establishing the Great Koala National Park (GKNP). This is great news!

The GKNP was developed by leading scientists, ecologists and local environmental groups, including the National Parks Association, who identified the most important areas of koala habitat in NSW. All of these areas need to be protected if we are to ensure the survival of koalas in the wild.

But analysis undertaken by our team has found that 17.7% of native state forest that constitutes the Great Koala National Park will be targeted for logging by Forestry Corporation NSW over the next 12 months. Click the below image to view our map of exactly where logging is planned.

What chance do koalas have if the area that was supposed to be their sanctuary is given the green light for logging? How does logging their homes before making it a national park make any sense?

That’s why we’ll be in the media and on the ground, calling for an immediate halt to logging in areas that will become the Great Koala National Park.

Of the 175,000ha of state forests that constitutes the GKNP proposal (green) Forestry Corporation NSW plans to log over 17% in the next 12 months (red), including some of the most important koala habitat in NSW (white).
