The new  logging rules for public forests  have just been released.

They are  described as disaster for old growth forests, rainforest, river health, threatened species, Koalas, and global warming.

Long time activist Margaret Blakers gives insight into why after decades of campaigning we are still not saving forests. 

She encourages us to jump on board the rising tide of action to stop native forest logging .
