Tips for writing your Letter

Introduce yourself, the issue you want to discuss (native forest protection), and why the issue is important to you.

Provide some context to show some understanding of the issue and ensure you keep it personal and refer specifically to what is happening in Takayna. Here you can use some of the messaging points below or information you find on our website. Consider what framing of the issue would be most appropriate for your MP.

Let them know what you would like them to do to represent the concerns of their electorate around native forest logging i.e. I would like for you as my local MP to represent this view in Parliament and show action to end native forest logging or Will you cross the floor to protect Australia’s native forests and wildlife?

Highlight, one last time, the importance of the issue to you and your community. i.e. Personally, I am concerned about [share a recent threat to native forest such as the logging happening in Takayna at the moment] OR I care deeply about native forest because [explain briefly why you are passionate about this issue]
