Make DELWP survey for threatened species before logging

Several times this year citizen surveys have identified endangered species in forests being logged by VicForests in East Gippsland. In several instances logging had to stop to comply with the law.

VicForests do not conduct appropriate pre logging surveys for threatened species, so it's left up to community groups to do their own and make sure the laws protecting these species are followed.

Environment Minister Lily D'Ambrosio needs to make the Department of Environment (DELWP) conduct their own surveys for threatened species to ensure logging isn't breaking the law and threatened species are protected.
