Extinction emergency

Tim Flannery, David Lindenmeyer, Bob Brown, Sarah Rees speak at a packed forum in Melbourne

The science is in — the ash forests ecosystem is in a state of near-collapse and Leadbeater’s Possum is heading rapidly to extinction. The case is compelling for stopping logging in the mighty ash forests and creating the Giant Forests National Park on Melbourne’s doorstep.

What’s happening to Leadbeater’s Possum is emblematic of failure on threatened species across the country.  This meeting was fantastic, inspiring, energising. It’s not too late — if we act now we can make a difference. Join the momentum.  No to #extinction.
