Leatherwood Forests Must be Protected

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader and Primary Industries spokesperson

Last summer’s bushfires burned large tracts of native forest, including the leatherwood trees so critical to the honey industry.

The fires had a devastating impact on beekeepers and the primary industries sector, with much of the leatherwood resource in the southern forests torched, scorched or smoke damaged.

These are hard times for the honey industry.

Labor Leadership Failure

Cassy O'Connor MP | Labor Leadership Failure

In a time of climate emergency and growing social inequality, political parties need to work together to advance the public interest.

Instead, Labor Leader, Rebecca White, is playing silly political games while the planet burns.

Ms White should know this island is not immune from global and national shocks.

She should know that leadership across the community is required to ensure future wellbeing and prosperity for Tasmanians.
