The wombats of Glenbog have been the subject of international media attention, thanks to the hard work of wildlife carers and neighbours.  However, the same fate, the prospect of being buried alive, entombed in their burrows where they face a slow, inevitable death awaits wombats all over south east NSW in logging compartments. There is no law to protect them from logging. Over 90% of the wood from Glenbog Forest goes to the Allied Natural Wood Exports/ South East Fibre Exports (SEFE) woodchip mill at Eden. The logging crew is contracted to SEFE.

Help ensure the wombats did not die in vain. Ask the NSW Government make it illegal to inflict cruelty, injury or death on these animals and ensure that offences are prosecuted and punished. Sign the on-line petition
