About the Event
In 2017 the Mirboo North community were shocked to find that significant sections of their precious native forests were earmarked for clear fell logging by VicForests. The community came together as one and voted to prevent the logging of one of the area’s major tourist attractions, the town’s amenity, and critical habitat for threatened species. So began a 3 year fight to save this crucial part of the once great Strzelecki Ranges.
Join Environmental Scientist, Susan Koci and Chair of Preserve our Forests Steering Committee, Marg Thomas as they outline the campaign to preserve these forests including the work to protect the significant Greater Glider population and to record the high conservation values within these forests. This work culminated in the declaration of an Immediate Protection Area by the State Government in November 2019; effectively preventing logging.
