Pemberton Chamber of Commerce and Industry

It is with pleasure and conviction that the executive committee resolved unanimously at our recent meeting, to fully support WA Forest Alliance’s upcoming campaign “Forests for Life”.
It is a well known fact among all local tourism industry operators, as well as support industries, that visitors come to our region predominantly because of the beauty of our native forests. Without appropriate protection of these key assets (all native forests in our region) our local economy could be threatened.
We believe that an essential component of the long-term viability of many local communities, businesses and industries, relies heavily upon the professional management and care of our native forests and the hasty transition to more sustainable sources of this commodity.
There is a significant cultural and social benefit gained from the many intrastate, interstate and international visitors that frequent our region, specifically to experience our native forests. This benefit, along with so many others, could be further enhanced by a successful campaign to protect our remaining native forests.
We wish WA Forest Alliance every success in their efforts.
