Fair go for forest wildlife - end logging's legal exemption

Fair go for forest wildlife - end logging's legal exemption

For twenty years the native forest logging industry has been exempt from complying with Federal environment laws. The exemption is granted through the Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs). 

Every other industry must comply with Federal environment law. But logging in habitat for federally listed threatened species can proceed with legal impunity.

In Victoria, the RFAs expire in March 2018. They should not be renewed.

It's time to give our forest wildlife a fair go and make logging comply with Federal environment law.
