PROTECTING FORESTS.
SUSTAINING COMMUNITIES.

The karri, jarrah, tuart and tingle forests are the heart of Australia’s South West. Western Australians love them and want to see them protected.

Protecting native forests, ensuring their health and vitality, supporting sustainable forest enterprises and transitioning the timber industry will bring tremendous environmental, social and economic benefits to the South West and the whole of Western Australia.

For many years we have been told that forest protection is in conflict with economic prosperity and employment. But as you’ll see, that is not the case. The timber industry is not profitable and relies on our taxes to stay afloat. Mills are closing and workers are losing their jobs. A well managed transition is overdue and its time has come.

We welcome your support and involvement as we put the FORESTS FOR LIFE plan into action. On this site you will discover what’s happening right now in the forests, what we need to do about it and how we can create hundreds of jobs, grow our own timber and deliver profound environmental benefits.

We encourage you to sign up, contact us, share the information and donate. Together we can make this happen!

SOTA Festival

READY, SET, GO!
With tickets to State Of Art Festival selling like hot cakes we thought we’d  give you a reminder that, aside from the fact there’s over 80 acts playing tomorrow, there are many more reasons to be getting a tad excited about #SOTAFest.

TICKETS ARE CHEAP, BUT HURRY…

A friendly reminder to get your tickets online for $35 +BF before 7AM tomorrw before you have to pay $45 (cash or credit card) on the door, and that’s if there’s any left at all… One ticket provides access to the three main ticketed stage areas; The Urban Orchard, Museum Courtyard and the State Theatre Courtyard. No wristband no entry, though you’re free to roam in and out all day!
