Nature and community groups had notified Forest Fire Management and state and federal environment ministers that destruction of scores of old hollow-bearing trees along 250 km of fuel breaks within the Yarra Ranges National Park is destroying critical habitat for threatened wildlife, including Leadbeater’s Possums, Gang-gang Cockatoos, Swift Parrots, and Greater Gliders.

3D seismic blasting releases explosions of noise louder than an atom bomb. We know that it’s deafening and sometimes fatal for whales, seals and penguins. It destroys zooplankton which is the mainstay food for many ocean species. It destroys the buoyancy mechanism for crayfish so they float to the ocean surface to be picked off by birds. It’s devastating to the whole of the marine environment and this damage is unacceptable when we know that the climate can’t afford a single new oil or gas project.
