Have your say on the WA government’s draft Forest Management Plan

Submissions on the WA draft Forest Management Plan are Due 18th December 2022

The northern jarrah/marri/wandoo forest ecosystem, which is across Perth Hills, is an internationally recognised biodiversity hotspot, and it was recently identified as one of a handful of Australian ecosystems most at risk due to climate change by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which said it was ‘highly confident’ that the ecosystem would ‘transition’ or ‘collapse’ as a result of a hotter and drier climate. The risk that this will happen is further exacerbated by a large number of factors such as clearing, inappropriate fire regimes, inappropriate housing developments, mining… and more.

Here is the draft  Forest Management Plan –

The WA Forest Alliance (WAFA)  has put together an assessment of the plan to assist you to write your submission.
