Spotlight: Barrabup Forest

by Anne Elvey

This could be the story in so many places, another old growth forest facing logging and its human supporters resisting. Right now, poet activist John Kinsella tells me that we need to pay attention to The Barrabup Forest, 5 km from Nannup in the South West of Western Australia. John has written a poem in response to the situation. You can read it here. There is a petition to sign here, and some media here.
