Humans are not the only Australians experiencing homelessness. Oldgrowth trees have been decimated across the landscape by bush fires, logging and development, and with them populations of hollow-dependent animals. In a life or death struggle, they have to compete for the dwindling numbers of suitable hollows. Meeting at Coffs Harbour - Details inside.
Hollows in oldgrowth trees are essential homes for many of Australia's animals. In NSW at least 46 mammals, 81 birds, 31 reptiles and 16 frogs, are reliant on tree hollows for shelter and nests.
And start the long process of restoring them.
The North-East Forest Alliance (NEFA) want to stop logging of public native forests, but we can't wait until we achieve this to take action for our imperiled wildlife. Please write today to ask the NSW Government to act now to stop logging our surviving hollow-bearing old-growth trees.
Also please join us, if you can, in Tweed Heads or Coffs Harbour 10am tomorrow Friday 27/5 for our campaign Launch at the offices of the National Party there (Geoff Provest- 103 Minjungbal Drive, Tweed Heads and Gurmesh Singh- 1/9 Park Avenue Coffs Harbour) to remind them that they need to pay attention to the community's demands for effective action for our forests.
