    COnsidering the federal government probably stumped up half the cash to purchase this as a national park, I don't think they should be allowed to open it up for logging. It's very disappointing, but really not all that unexpected.

    That address to the IPA should be required reading for all Australians. I was surprised there was very little press coverage of it.

    Logging in national parks... I still can't get my head around this as a reality in 2013. Not to mention the Victorian government's plans for hotels and assorted developments in the parks down here.

    Trash the funding over decades and then say that the only way to adequately fund them is via this barbarism. I shudder to think of what will remain of our biodiversity by the end of Abbott's reign.

    Well we need to chose the better of two evils and possibly go back in time and start chaining ourselves to trees again :(
