Rallies throughout Australia demanded an end to the logging of native forests

Marching throughout Australia’s major cities and smaller centres. More than 4,000 people demanded an end to the logging of native forests. As part of the Bob Brown Foundation’s March in March for Forests, large crowds gathered in Sydney, Canberra, and Adelaide. Also, the regional centres of Newcastle, Bega, Kyneton, Lismore, and Bellingen were gathered.

It occurred just one week after 3,000 protesters marched in Hobart to oppose forest logging, as pressure to safeguard forests and their residents grows on the federal government.

Attendees carried signs advocating for the protection of native wildlife’s habitats while dressed as trees or koalas.

The purpose of the marches, organized by the foundation, to put a halt to native forest logging and to ensure that native forests safely protected.

Environmentalist Bob Brown said that Australians “need the forests the most” and urged people to participate in the marches in a statement.

“We continue to destroy trees at a time when we most need them. He declared, “Native forests must preserved and restored.

The turnouts, according to Jenny Weber, the campaigns manager for the Bob Brown Foundation, showed that people are becoming more aware of the increasing risks of extinction that certain local species face.

“People are aware that forests are being cut down. Also, they are sure that the tales of the swift parrots, the greater gliders, and the koalas will make them realize that there are actual animals that have been lost to logging and are in danger of going extinct.”

“The idea that logging is still destroying Australian wildlife’s habitats worries people a lot because they love this country’s wildlife,” the speaker stated.

A “koala summit” held in New South Wales last week to discuss the main dangers to one of the most well-known native species in Australia. Falling numbers attributed to logging, land clearance, and bushfires; in 2022, the government upgraded the koala’s protected classification to endangered.

Even in cities like Adelaide, where there is little connection to trees, demonstrators have voiced concerns about habitat destruction, according to Weber.

The upcoming federal election, she claimed, was the target of the Foundation’s effort.

“We are going straight for Prime Minister Albanese; we want him to know that he can stop native forest logging and safely save native forests throughout Australia. The state need not have authority over it.

“Until the federal election or until forests protected, we are expanding these nationwide actions,” the spokesperson stated.

Senator Sarah Hanson-Young of the Green Party joined the demonstration by stating that additional “protectors” required.

“Logging in native forests must stop, as must the devastation of wildlife habitats. Fewer destroyers and more defenders are what we need.

The outcome of the Tasmanian election, according to Hanson-Young, represents a “clear rejection” of the major parties’ climate policies.

She declared, “The results of the Tasmanian election reject the major parties’ push to continue destruction.”

The federal environment minister is now drafting legislation to amend our outdated environmental regulations. The logging of natural forests has to stop.
