Warrup forest logging halted as FRA protestor, like spiderman, webs between two trees

Gerry Georgatos
A Forest Rescue Australia (FRA) activist halted logging in Warrup after he constructed a "spider's web" between two trees that blocked an access way for logging vehicles into Warrup coupe 06.

Sean Gransch built a makeshift "spider's web" between the two trees in the early morning hours of Tuesday April 23. At 4am in the morning he climbed the platform in the middle of the "web" and stayed there for the day. The platform dangled about 15 metres above the access way.

YES, there are numbats in Warrup

by Gerry Georgatos Conservationists have been campaigning to save what they say is WA's largest numbat colony in Warrup. The Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) had been denying such a colony existed.

The conservationists have called for a halt to logging in Warrup after finding what they say is irrefutable evidence of endangered numbats living near the logging in Warrup.

Bridgetown-Greenbushes Friends of the Forest (BGFF) have long warned that Warrup is in danger of being imminently logged. Conservation groups state wide have committed to protecting Warrup at all costs, even if it means arrests.

Saving Warrup Forest

The Western Australian Forest Alliance will work with Bridgetown-Greenbushes Friends of the Forest to oppose prospective logging of Warrup forest, which is located in the Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes, in the south west of Western Australia. On Sunday morning, July 10, WAFA, hosted by the BGFF, invited me to a fact finding mission in the Warrup.
