As we drove through what seemed to be lush tropical rainforest everything seemed fine. Dylan and Julia stopped to show us the lie. The logging companies had left a stand of trees next to the road. Beyond that we walked out into a scene of devastation. There were hills denuded of trees. The logging companies had stripped them bare. The wildlife was gone – either killed or banished.
The reason? These old gum trees were felled to sell to China who pulped them for paper!!
Do we really need to destroy wildlife for paper?
