  1. Great work, Sofia:
    My observations are mostly to the west of Melbourne, but it seems every time I go bush I encounter more native forests clear-felled for plantations. I’m visiting the Otways now and witnessing it here. A few years back I returned to the south-west and was dismayed to discover the (unique) stretch of native forest from Portland virtually to the South Aust border turned into pine plantations.

  2. +1, yes, great work Sofia.
    Unfortunately this story is repeated in the Central Highlands (but you already knew that).
    I’ll be sure to share this.
