OPINION: Can Nambucca Council commit to environmental protection?

DEAR News Of The Area,

CONGRATULATIONS to your paper on the coverage of environmental issues facing our community.

Bellingen council has voted to protect forests, soil and water so come on Nambucca councillors, please commit to the same action in our shire.

Logging has to stop, and to quote Bellingen Councillor Dominic King ‘we can’t continue to do what we did 50, 20 or even ten years ago’.

We need a just transition of workers from logging to more sustainable jobs and this is not only possible but essential.

Our environment needs protection so we can leave a world that is better for our children and grandchildren.

Nambucca Heads.
