By Margaret Mitchell, friend and fellow bushwalker.
Jean Blackman passed away on 8 March 2023. We thank Margaret for sharing these memories of Jean with us. Margaret walked with Jean on NPA bushwalks for 30 years. Margaret thanks the staff of the Summit Care Nursing home in Randwick for their care for Jean and their kindness.
Jean gave such happiness to us walkers over many decades.
National Parks Association President Dr Grahame Douglas welcomed the Victorian Government’s decision to accelerate shutting down public native forestry by the end of 2023, drastically moving forward the original deadline of 2030.
‘It’s a relief to see a State Government acknowledging that we are running out of time to protect our last remaining forests and forest dependant fauna. Now’s the time for the NSW Government to follow suit and end the logging that is driving our forests and unique wildlife to extinction’ said Dr Douglas.
The National Parks Association today released a report exposing Snowy Hydro’s lack of compliance with the environmental Conditions of Approval for the Snowy 2.0 project, located within Kosciuszko National Park.
‘Our investigations show that Snowy Hydro and its contractors are not complying with the ‘strict’ environmental Conditions of Approval imposed by the Federal and NSW Governments’ stated Gary Dunnett, CEO of NPA.
National Parks Association of NSW President, Dr Grahame Douglas said recent reports of severe damage to an environmentally sensitive private property (NBN news story 10 April 2023) is yet another example of why Forestry Corporation cannot be trusted to continue logging within the proposed Great Koala National Park.
