DO Details

Every week, more forest is felled, and critically endangered species like the Leadbeater's Possum slide towards extinction. Your support can help to bring logging back under federal environmental laws, and transform the fate of our forests and wildlife.

 

Join Friends of Leadbeater's Possum and Environmental Justice Australia for an evening to raise funds to defend our forests and wildlife. 

 

Friends of Leadbeater's Possum, represented by Environmental Justice Australia, are fighting a landmark case to test the legality of the native forest logging exemption from federal environment laws. The outcome could bring the logging industry back within reach of Federal law and mark a shift in the era of short-sighted logging that has pushed so many species to the brink.

 

We need your support to keep taking cases like this to court, and to push our governments to enact better, stronger environmental laws. It's a big job, and we need the support of a big community.

 

Book now for Possum Palooza, a fundraiser that brings together live music, a silent auction and passionate words from eminent ecologist, Professor David Lindenmayer, EJA Senior Lawyer, Danya Jacobs and environmentalist Maggie Riddington

 

When: 5.30-8pm, Wednesday 7 March
