Stop Work Order extended for another 40 days!

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) extended their 40 day stop work order in Tallaganda State Forest until November 13th 2023, meaning logging will be halted in all of Tallaganda State Forest for almost three months.

Key Points:

This significant action by the EPA demonstrates the level of concern within government, and their agencies, over this nationally endangered species.

We also submitted a joint report on the survey to the EPA, including records for 17 greater glider den trees found during our site trip, each of which will require a logging exclusion zone.

We must now build the case for expanding the nearby Tallaganda National Park, to protect all of the greater glider habitat in what we believe to be one of the most substantial populations of the species remaining in Australia.

Ultimately, this is a small checkpoint in the race to end native forest logging in NSW, the only genuine solution for all endangered forest fauna. The Forestry Corporation of NSW should not be responsible for the fate of our native forest wildlife.
