The Victorian government can start by creating the Great Forest National Park, which will connect and protect 355,000 hectares of tall mountain ash forests in the Central Highlands of Victoria.
A new national park will help protect the critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum. It will safeguard the purity of our water catchments, decrease the intensity of devastating bushfires and give everyone an incredible natural playground just an hour from the city.
We love our unique forests and want to see them protected. That's why we’ve taken a seat at the historic Forest Industry Taskforce alongside other environment, union and industry groups. Together, we are coming together to find a way forward for Victoria’s forests.
