The Greens have been working tirelessly to protect all koala habitat in state forests from logging, including through the creation of new national parks. They strongly oppose the NSW LNP government’s weakened environmental laws, which allow for devastating deforestation and clearing of koala habitat.
The former principal solicitor of the Environmental Defenders Office and environmental lawyer Sue Higginson, our Greens Mayor Katie Milne and NSW MP and koala spokesperson Dawn Walker have been working tirelessly to save our forests from logging and the establishment of The Great Koala National Park near Coffs Harbour.
The Greens recognise that biodiversity conservation is crucial to maintaining ecological integrity and ecological sustainability, and that climate change is having a devastating and ongoing negative impact on biodiversity. The weakening of environmental protection by any level of government must be opposed.
