Forests for Climate, Forests for Life
Forests are a major ally in the climate crisis. We must prioritise their conservation.
But right now, logging and clearing are major drivers of climate change, releasing huge volumes of carbon into the atmosphere and destroying a critical carbon sink.
As climate change intensifies, droughts and fires are having severe impacts on the forests and wildlife.
We need to safeguard the forests so that they can continue to safeguard the climate, and the planet.
But before we can do this, we need significant policy change.
Sign the petition to email Premier Mark McGowan and call on him to protect WA’s forests for climate, communities, water and wildlife.

Let’s learn and take action together.
Since WAFA began, rallies; protests; forest blockades; camps; trainings and celebrations have been central to what we do.
Events get the attention of decision makers, and are often the catalyst for great achievements for forests in Western Australia.
