The Great Forest National Park – Nature as a climate solution.

 

Land clearing and deforestation not only impact greatly on the native and endangered species that live in impacted areas, but contribute dramatically to climate change. Protecting forests is an often overlooked part of the solution to fighting climate change, particularly in the Central Highlands of Victoria, home to some of the most carbon-dense forests on Earth.

Hear about how creating the Great Forest National Park will help mitigate catastrophic climate change, as well as safeguard Melbourne’s water supply, provide a sanctuary for endangered species, rejuvenate regional communities through tourism and new job opportunities, and offer a playground on Melbourne’s doorstep for all Victorian’s to enjoy.
