Protecting Australia’s forests from biomass burning
Reinstate the exclusion of native forest biomass as a renewable source of energy.
We are calling on Labor to reverse the Abbott-era regulation that allows native forest biomass to be included as a source of renewable energy. Australia’s forests are some of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the world, habitat for critically endangered and threatened species such as koalas and Swift parrots.
These forests need urgent protection – not burning for electricity. Take action today for our forests and wildlife – use our letter template, or write your own, and demand that Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Minister for Energy and Climate Change Chris Bowen restore the Gillard government’s regulation excluding native forest biomass as a source of renewable energy.
