To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. We the undersigned wish to register our strongest protest against the following:

1. The damming of the Franklin and Gordon Rivers in South West Tasmania.

2. The continuation of logging in the Booloumba Creek catchment of the Conondale Range in Southern Queensland.

We ask that you fulfil your obligation of office and voice and support the request of your electors to save these unique rainforest areas, so that our children and their children, may see what this beautiful world was like before it is all gone!

We are prepared to curb our usage of timber and energy in order to preserve these priceless gems of nature.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
