Liberals’ Forestry Agenda Putting Swift Parrot on the Chopping Block

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.

West Coast Community Demand Tassal Remove Macquarie Harbour Waste

Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens' Marine Environment spokesperson

The West Coast Council’s unanimous vote against Tassal dumping its salmon waste in Macquarie Harbour is a strong signal the local community won’t accept any further pressure on the harbour or its World Heritage values.

Tassal is using an untested waste capture method beneath its pens so it can stock an extra 4,000 tonnes of fish above the harbour limit previously set by the Environment Protection Authority.
