Saving Gippsland’s old growth forest
Posted on: Sun 5 Nov 2017
Conservationists who established a blockade to stop the logging of old growth forest in Victoria’s East Gippsland are celebrating after they secured a legal injunction that has stalled the logging operation. The controversy erupted last week when VicForests constructed a road into the forest to commence logging. The Goongerah Environment Centre called on Environment Minister, Lily D’Ambrosio to step in and protect the old growth forest.
