Description

Doctors for Forests is a group that started in 2001 with the aim of protecting Tasmania’s old growth forests.

Doctors for Forests is not allied with any political party. The group currently has 678 members including Specialists, General Practitioners, Resident Medical Officers, other Health Professionals and Medical Students. We are open to all members of the community

We call for the end to logging in high conservation value old-growth forests as identified by the Tasmania Together process, and the management of the remaining old-growth forests must be urgently reviewed.
