Destruction of wild habitats will continue - Brown

Clearfell logging and burning of Tasmania’s native forests will continue despite today’s

announcements, Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.

“The plight of endangered nesting species like the giant Tasmanian Wedgetail eagle and

swift parrot will become worse as more unnecessary destruction of forests and nesting

trees continues at a rate of thousands of hectares per year,” Senator Brown said.

The state and federal government must join the Greens to end logging of wild habitats and

base the industry on the 1.7 million hectares of plantations which afford all the nations

wood needs, including for building and paper.
