Science Wins the Tasmanian Forestry Debate
The extension of the Tasmanian Regional Forestry Agreement for another 20 years is a tribute to the role of professional forest scientists in making sure that Australia manages its forests in accordance with solid facts rather than emotion. See Media Release.
Bob Gordon, newly elected National President of the Australian Institute of Foresters has welcomed the extension saying, ‘The extension of the RFA provides certainty to the thousands of Tasmanians involved in the forestry industry in Tasmania including park managers, ecologists and timber workers.
‘The extension of the Regional Forest Agreement is testament to the ongoing work managing Tasmania’s sustainable forestry industry in the constant face of adversity and represents a victory for science.’
