Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Environment spokesperson
In their ideologically-driven rush to log the State’s native forests, the Liberals are destroying the habitat of the endangered Swift parrot. They’ve authorised logging of critical parrot habitat in Southern Tasmania, without a thought for the endangered bird.
There are only 2,000 swifties left in the wild, and the Liberals have made a deliberate decision to log these forests. We must stop the logging of Swift parrot habitat - full stop - if they are to survive.
