$
BGFF has for 25 years fought to preserve native forests in the Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes, in one case even taking an issue to the High Court of Australia. As a result the Shire has a high proportion of its surrounding forests preserved for its residents and visitors and future generations.

We are now fighting to preserve the Warrup forest block in the south east of the Shire. This 35 sq km forest is the last major mixed old-growth and high conservation value forest in the south eastern jarrah forest where the original forest structure is still preserved.For further information please go to www.savewarrup.com

We are also actively involved in the West Australian Forest Alliance campaign to end logging of native forests.

We urgently need funds to support our activities aimed at preserving the iconic Warrup forest from planned intensive logging by the government and supporting the WAFA campaign to end logging of native forests.

How will the funds be used?

Public education and extension through print and online media and public events such as symposia, workshops and meetings. We also support research and studies aimed at eliminating or mitigating threats to the high conservation value forest, its endangered wildlife and flora and indigenous and non-indigenous heritage, by intensive logging and climate change.

Key areas of expenditure for funds donated

Tax deductible donations must be applied to eligible environmental and conservation projects approved by our Trustees. These currently include the WAFA Native Forest Preservation Project and out own Warrup Preservation Project. They cannot be applied to the cost of routine administration.
