Protecting Wilderness and National Parks

Ask Premier Mike Baird to reject logging and grazing in Pilliga’s reserves

We need your help to stop plans to log native woodlands and graze stock in conservation reserves. On December 8, the Natural Resources Commission released a plan for commercial logging and grazing in Pilliga's conservation reserves just north of Coonabarabran.

Please write to Premier Baird and relevant Cabinet Ministers using the letter guide below.  
More detailed arguments opposing these plans are available here.

Extra points you could mention to personalise your letter:

The dense white cypress trees are not an ecological problem, these trees naturally form dense clumps. Dense patches found in these reserves are in any case less than 20 hectares in size (NRC, Dec 2014, p49).

Logging white cypress pine does not necessarily increase growth and regeneration of eucalypts in western NSW (NRC, p61).

I strongly oppose logging of cypress trees and grazing of cattle in state conservation areas because these reserves will become effectively state forests in everything but their name.
