We have released a series of reports outlining how Forestry Tasmania are still carrying out logging in breeding habitat of the critically endangered Swift Parrot.
Prime Minister Albanese & Tasmanian Premier Rockliff need to declare secure, permanent protection across all Swift parrot habitat in Tasmania; in the southern forests, on Bruny Island and the east coast.
If logging does not stop in Swift parrot breeding and foraging habitat today, the species will go extinct. The critically endangered Swift parrot will not survive further destruction of these forests.
The critically endangered Swift parrot will not survive further destruction of their forest habitat unless secure protection in conservation reserves occurs.

Tasmania’s government has 13,027 hectares of Swift parrot habitat on 2023-2025 logging schedule.
