The Forest Products Commission are currently attempting to decimate the largest intact numbat colony in our state at Warrup forest. There are more pandas in the wild in China (1600) than numbats in Western Australia (under 1000), and the numbat is our state fauna emblem.
"It is disgusting in this day and age that the Barnett government have scant disregard for our state emblem, which is on the brink of extinction. How will we explain to future generations that we stood idly by while the FPC destroyed the last major colony of numbats." - Forest Rescue spokesperson Simon Peterffy.
There have been numerous sightings of numbats throughout the proposed logging coupe and activists are now preparing a legal injunction to have the numbat colony saved.
Last week this numbat was spotted and photographed a few metres from a major logging road in the Warrup forest. "Every working day it is in danger of being skittled by a logging vehicle while this dodgy operation continues." Sais Mr. Peterffy. "For more information on how to get involved with the campaign call either myself (Simon) on 0422 535 328 or Amy on 0428 048 632."
