Carbon Cost of Logging

Sunday, 5 March 2023 - 11:00am to 11:30am

Did you know that Emissions from native forest logging in south-eastern Australia are greater than Australia’s domestic aviation industry? This episode we speak with Dr Jennifer Sanger from environmental research group, Tree Projects. Dr Sanger discusses three new reports tracking the carbon footprint created by native logging in Southeast Australia and the efforts being taken by the logging industry to hide this carbon cost.

We also check-in with Sue McKinnon from Kinglake Friends of the Forest to get an update on KFF and Environmental East Gippsland’s success in court last year. We discuss the need for greater transparency in the Victorian government’s plan to phase out native logging and the citizen science efforts underway in 2023 to ensure Victoria’s forests stay protected. You can get involved in surveying and following the group at their website, Kinglake Friends of the Forest .
