These are companion documents to the Great Southern Forest's Brief to the State and Federal Governments. They draw on forest history, research of ANU scientists and economists, and local forest knowledge. They have been written in various voices by the conservationists of the southeast region of New South Wales. It is their story, their campaign, and expresses their directive to bring a new dawn, and new order to native forest management based on jobs, wildlife and climate.
Please note there are pictures and writing in these documents about native species and their habitat which may cause distress.
All documents are noted as Drafts for updating purposes. Contributions very welcome.
