Did you know native forests are still being logged in Victoria - mostly for wood chips which end up as cheap paper and card board products?


We're fighting to stop the destruction.


The Victorian state government recently announced they're bringing forward the transition out of logging to January 1 2024, but our work is more important than ever.
