Some good news for a nice change!!

Forestry NSW have agreed to write a draft of operational guidelines for managing wombat burrows in State Forests. We won a battle but we still have to win the war!

Please continue to write to Forestry, Local and State Governments to ensure that ALL native animals are considered and protected in logging activity.

The draft guideline will consider:

1 Differentiation between burrows and ‘bolt-holes’

2 Identification of whether burrows are active or not (using simple overnight monitoring measures)

3 Location of snig tracks entering log dumps

4 Treatment of burrows located at the end of large logs on the ground ·

5 A field marking protocol
