the logging petition

The issue of logging continues to grow across the upper yarra region of the shire, as a response to community concerns a petition has been developed.

The petition reads....

Protect Melbourne’s water catchments from logging to protect our precious water supplies long into the future.
We the undersigned draw to the attention of the Legislative Assembly of Victoria that logging of high conservation forest is occurring at the Armstrong Creek Catchment.
We the people, are outraged that at a time when Victoria is experiencing its most severe drought, logging of this catchment is reducing our water supply.
We are equally concerned at the fact that logging of this catchment is destroying the habitat of Victoria’s endangered faunal species, the Leadbeaters Possum.
We therefore call on the Victorian Government to immediately cease logging of the Armstrong, Thomson, Cement, McMahons and Starvation Catchments.

If you would like a copy of the petition to distribute please email me on

Please note petitions need to be returned by end of March, 2008
