Subject: River Red Gum National Parks Under Threat
The River Red Gum National Parks are under threat.
A final decision on Red Gum Parks is likely this week but there is a strong chance it will not be a good one.
The Minister for forestry, Ian MacDonald, has said he does not agree with the recommendations of the Natural Resources Commission and he is doing everything he can to bring them down.
In the mean time, forestry are trying to open up new areas for logging in the Millewa forest.
Please make a phone call today in a last ditch effort to save the Red Gum.
Premiers Office: 0292285239
Minister for Environments Office: 0292285811
Ask for the adviser working on River Red Gum. Let them know:
- They need to deliver on the promises which they made last year.
- The full reserve areas recommended by the Natural Resources Commission need to be protected.
- Logging has to stop in the Millewa forest.
