Carnage out of sight of prying eyes

Dear The Beagle Editor,

In the lead up to the Moruya Forest Forum, your readers may be interested in the intensity of logging in just one compartment of our local area.

Indiscriminate logging and gun proliferation are sure ways to destroy our Nature Coast image, and the safety of and well-being of the community.

Both these damaging assaults on our enviable way of life should be strongly opposed by the Eurobodalla Shire Council, but with only two exceptions councillors appear to be more concerned with satisfying the wishes of powerful external bodies than they are with the future of people who elected them.

In the words of John Williamson, in “Rip, rip Woodchip”:

What am I gonna do?

What about the future?

Gotta draw the line without delay

Why shouldn’t I get emotional

The bush is sacred

Ancient life will fade away.


I am the bush and I am koala

We are one-go hand in hand

I am the bush like Banjo and Henry

It’s in my blood-gonna make a stand. The new Flora Reserves on the far South Coast between Bermagui and Tathra has led to the intensification of native forest logging in the Batemans Bay region including in Benandarah State Forest, Boyne State Forest and North and South Brooman on the opposite side of the highway adjacent to Murramarang National Park. It is simply unacceptable that the Batemans Bay region forests are being targeted for yet more intensive logging which is destroying wildife habitat and effectively turning our wonderful forests into pseudo plantations.

And you can make a stand at the Forest Forum,Moruya, this Wednesday.

It is carnage happening out of sight and away from prying eyes.

Yours Sincerely,

Very Concerned Rate Payer
