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 July 1st, 2024.

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 July. 

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

The Bulga Hall, Elands from around 2pm on Sunday May 12th, 2024

See you there!

The Greater Glider population in the Bulga won’t survive the logging.

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.

Meet in Elands June 28/29th ready for active defence of our local Greater Gliders!

What’s Happening?

Updated, 1st May, 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 July1st.

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.

We are currently in the planning stages for a big meet up in Elands on June 28/29 ready for active defence of our local Greater Gliders!

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.

Tarp held up well though a very rainy afternoon and evening, I am so glad this platform stayed dry. 

Forest birds don’t seem as enthusiastic today with their good morning to the world chorus. Still a bit damp and chilly for singing maybe. Perhaps once the sun breaks out of the mist clouds they might feel more hearty.
