Forests case over endangered species
Following dozens of fines for environmental breaches on the North Coast in recent years, Forests NSW is now being prosecuted in the Land and Environment Court for its failure to protect endangered species.
(North East Forest) Alliance spokesperson Dailan Pugh said he was frustrated proceedings had taken so long but was relieved it was now under way.
"Forests NSW and their minister have repeatedly claimed that they did nothing wrong (so) we welcome this opportunity for the truth to be tested in court," he said.
