RFAOver 30 organisations have released a statement urging the Federal government not to renew Regional Forest Agreements.

The statement cites multiple sources confirming that forestry operations conducted under the agreements have not delivered promised economic or environmental benefits, and continue to compromise biodiversity.

The organisations called on the government to remove exemptions for assessment of forest operations, and require any proposals to log public native forests to be assessed under the EPBC Act.
