Win against logging

Issue 

Environmentalists have scored a win against logging in Mumbulla state forest in south-east New South Wales. Forests NSW suspending activity on April 28 after it was revealed the area may be part of an Indigenous Protection Zone.

The Narooma News that day said areas due to be logged were gazetted as Aboriginal sites in the 1980s.

Since March 29, activists have been fighting to save the native forest and its fragile koala colony.

"The status of the remaining areas of Mumbulla State forest is still unclear, but conservationists are gearing up for further struggles over the significant amount of koala habitat forest that remains at risk”, Harriett Swift from campaign group Chipstop told the Narooma News.
