Forest Network were volunteers within Friends of the Earth in Melbourne, Australia. Forest Network was active from 1993 to 2005. We are a group working for the preservation and conservation of forests. We are committed to providing information on forest issues and non-violent direct action and activism to secure the earths ecological future and a sustainable and equitable society.
We believe in the intrinsic value of all species and landscapes present on the Earth and therefore wish to adopt systems of production that fulfil basic human needs with minimal impact on the natural environment.
We are committed to the promotion and protection of native forests and timber production methods that rehabilitate degraded lands.
We are trying to protect high conservation value forests and promote the shift to an ecologically viable wood products industry in Australia.
Our aim is to preserve all the values of native forests in a way that ensures the continued healthy functioning of all of the processes of native forest ecosystems.
Focus of Activities
* The maintenance of catchment integrity;
* The protection of all threatened species' habitats and ensuring that other species do not become threatened;
* Immediate protection of all remaining ecologically significant native forests, including rainforest, old growth forest and other under-represented forest types;
* The elimination of any practices and activities which are a threat to nutrient or soil conservation or undermine the integrity of ecological processes;
* Maintaining the diversity of species and ecological communities and the genetic diversity of forest plants, animals and insects.
