Don't let Greater Gliders disappear from the Central Highlands

Greater Gliders are in trouble. Logging, land-clearing, and bushfires are causing their population to plummet.

Greater Gliders live high in the treetops, with a home range of only about 2-3 hectares. But now, logging companies are clear-felling their forests homes – knocking down tree after tree to make copy paper.

Currently, our environmental laws are not strong enough to stop the cutting and the Greater Gliders are just one of many creatures paying the price.

But, by creating the Great Forest National Park we can help protect the future of spectacular trees and the Greater Gliders that rely on them. This new park will help save threatened wildlife, protect our precious water catchments and carbon stores and create a wonderful natural playground just an hour from the city.

Sign the petition and ask Premier Daniel Andrews to create the Great Forest National Park and connect and protect 355,000 hectares of tall mountain ash forests in the Central Highlands of Victoria.

Subject: Please create the Great Forest National Park

Dear Premier,

CC: Treasurer, Environment Minister and Agriculture Minister,

The forests of Victoria's Great Dividing Range are an essential source of life. They filter the water we drink and the air we breathe, and are a haven for threatened wildlife like the Greater Glider.

Yet all along the Range, magnificent forests continue to fall. Valued only for their fibre, our forests are being clear-felled, wood-chipped, bulldozed and burnt.

We have a historic opportunity to secure the future of our forests, your leadership is needed to create the Great Forest National Park and to safeguard Victoria's precious forests.
