Dead koala found in logging coupe reignites push for new protected national park

(The thought that some of Australia’s fauna is dying because of logging in Victorian forests is grim enough, but deforestation of any size anywhere, not only because that it kills the indigenous species, but the removal of trees, big or small, many or few, worsens further the drivers of climate change, and so not only will we be killing our indigenous wildlife, we will, ultimately, be killing ourselves - Robert McLean.)

Logging destroys the infrastructure up which our
indigenous animals depend and ultimately the
deforestation worsens climate change threatening
the broader wellbeing of humanity.
A dead koala has been found between fallen trees in a logged forest that the Andrews government could have protected – had it not ignored advice from its own scientific committee.

The Sunday Age has obtained graphic images of the lifeless animal slumped over branches in the Acheron Valley north of Warburton, in a confronting example of the potential impact of logging in Victoria.
