Save Bulga Forest!

BULGA LOGGING SCHEDULED TO START ON MAY 20, 2024

Currently about 2000 ha of Bulga forest is being planned for logging, which is about 10 times more than they started last time.

At the moment Forestry are saying they will start operations on May 20.

That is only a matter of weeks away so it’s it’s all hands on deck! We held them off last year – WE CAN DO IT AGAIN!

Let’s come together to discuss what we need to do ahead of May. We’ll gather at in Elands on Sunday 14th April 2024.

The Greater Glider population in the Bulga won’t survive the logging, so if we want kids in the future to be able to have the thrill of spotting them in the wild, then we have to save their homes.

To coincide with the Elands Markets we’ll meet at:

The Bulga Hall, Elands from 2pm-4pm on Sunday 14th April

See you there!

What’s Happening?

Updated, 26th March, 2024. We need you, still.

Logging was suspended in Bulga State Forest on Biripi country- twice! But now currently about 2000 ha of Bulga forest is being planned for logging. About 10 times more than they started last time. At the moment Forestry are saying they will start operations on May 20.

Please join us so we can permanently Save Bulga State Forest on Biripi country. The action by the community here in Bulga Forest over the last year and more has so far forced Forestry Corporation to temporarily delay their plans to destroy the Bulga forest.

We are a small community and really need your solidarity. We know that the climate extremes will continue to manifest and that biodiversity is on a downward spiral. We know too that our creativity, determination and joy has been a really effective tool for keeping Bulga forest standing.

Keep updated by subscribing to our newsletters. There will be some more face-to-face meetings and skill shares. We’ll continue to gather together for citizen science sessions, tripod making and climbing skills, forest craft, signs and banner making, family activities, info nights, dance and more.

There have also been many Greater Glider sightings and there are many more to find. If you are interested in doing a ‘den watch’ let us know. It involves watching a particular tree hollow at dusk to see if a glider emerges.

If you can’t come in person, amplify our voice, share our posts, contact politicians, check out @SaveBulgaForest on Facebook, www.savebulgaforest.org or  email [email protected] for more info.

Bulga Logging Resumption Set to Ignite Conflict

Bulga Logging Resumption Set to Ignite Conflict

Bulga Logging Resumption Set to Ignite Conflict

The resumption of logging in Bulga State Forest north of Taree appears to be imminent with the Forestry Corporation again closing the forest to the public. Logging was halted there in early 2023 due to sustained pressure from Save Bulga Forest.

Forestry Corporation has an aversion to transparency. They don’t consult on their logging plans and they certainly don’t want people seeing the damage being done to the heads of the catchments of the Hastings and Manning Rivers.

The logging will cause major damage and likely lead to the deaths of Koalas and Greater Gliders, both endangered and both known to be living in the area.

Victoria’s exit from native forest logging is welcome & long overdue

Victoria’s exit from native forest logging is welcome & long overdue

By the end of the year, Victoria’s trouble-plagued native forest industry will end – six years ahead of schedule. The state’s iconic mountain ash forests and endangered wildlife will at last be safe from chainsaws. And there will be no shortage of wood – there’s more than enough plantation timber to fill the gap.
