Save Tasmanian Devil and Forest From Greedy Loggers

Target: Josh Frydenberg, Minister for the Environment and Energy

Goal: Save Tasmanian devil and forests from destruction by the logging industry.

A new proposal in Tasmania would allow 356,000 hectares of forest to be used by the logging industry. This was proposed with the hope of generating money, but allowing these forests to be destroyed would be detrimental to rare and endangered wildlife.

The species being threatened include the Tasmanian devil, the wedge-tailed eagle and the swift parrot. A portion of the forest that would lose protection falls within the Tarkine region. This area is home to Australia’s largest temperate rainforest. It is home to animals such as the wombat and the platypus, as well as over 100 species of birds. These animals would also be threatened if the new legislation was approved.

The government of Tasmania is currently placing a higher value on industry profits than on the lives of these animals and the long-term prosperity of its environment. Sign this petition to encourage environment minister Josh Frydenberg to help protect these Tasmanian forests and the wildlife that call it home.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Josh Frydenberg,

The newly proposed bill that would allow for 356,000 hectares of land to be used by the logging industry is posing a major threat to the Tasmanian devil, forests and the other endangered wildlife that lives within them.

Animals at risk include the Tasmanian devil, the wedge-tailed eagle and the swift parrot. Each of these species is already considered to be endangered and this bill would put the numbers remaining in serious danger. In addition, Australia’s largest temperate rainforest is at risk. A portion of the Tarkine region would lose protection with this bill which is where that forest is located. This threatens more animals, including the wombat and the platypus.

It is clear that the government is placing more importance on making money for loggers than on the long-term welfare of the environment and endangered wildlife. Protecting these animals and forests is part of your duty as the environment minister and we highly encourage you to do what needs to be done to keep them safe. That means this proposal needs to be rejected and that, in addition, more protection needs to be implemented.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    There are many people who undertake big and expense efforts to save these endearing and original animals. The devils, this iconic species, fight against two contagious cancer illnesses by the name of “devil facial tumour disease” 1 and 2 and are threatened by the extinction. And then their living space is damaged because of the profit! This should not be!!! Devils forever!!!!!
