UPDATE: Case made, awaiting judgement. The Bob Brown Foundation is running a campaign and court action to end native forest logging (!)

The Bob Brown Foundation is taking on a monumental legal case challenging the regulation of native forest logging. The Great Forest Case is the best chance in a generation of ending native forest logging.

The Great Forest Case hearings were on 2nd and 3rd of December!

The case argued that the Tasmanian Regional Forest Agreement (RFA) is not a valid agreement. RFAs are outdated agreements which are notoriously inadequate for protecting our threatened species. If their case is successful, it will not only be good news for Tasmania but will be significant for other states in Australia, as it will set a precedent for similar litigation.

It’s time to put an end to the destruction of native forests. 

The day after the case the BBF held a follow-up webinar to give you an update about what happened during the case. Speakers  included Bob Brown, BBF lawyer Roland Browne and Campaign Manager Jenny Weber.
