Draft Forest Management Plan 2024-2033 open for public comment
The Draft Forest Management Plan 2024-2033 has been prepared by the Conservation and Parks Commission (through the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions) in accordance with the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984. It is more concise and readable, with an increased focus on Noongar values and the drying and warming climate of the south-west.
Under the draft plan, at least 400,000 hectares of karri, jarrah and wandoo forests will become nature reserves, national parks or conservation parks, meaning nearly two million hectares of native forests will be protected into the future.
The public consultation period is open until 11:59pm Sunday 18 December 2022. View the Draft Forest Management Plan 2024-2033 and make a submission at dbca.wa.gov.au/forest-management-plan.
