For those following the forest debate - faulkner and Beddall have released
their media statement about the woodchip licences and DFAs (Deferred Forest
Areas).  Things are not good for the birdies eg.
- virtually no account taken of threatened species in the process (they are
still logging box/ironbark forest - say goodbye to Regent Honeyeaters and a
few other species over the next centuary) - no account of large forest owls
etc..  If you feel like writing to a minister or paper or two - now is the
time to act
