  • "The New South Wales Environment Minister has been ridiculed by the Opposition after telling a budget estimates hearing that logging protects koalas. Robyn Parker was being questioned at the NSW Parliament over the State Government's election commitment to protect threatened species, including koalas.

    Labor MP Luke Foley asked Ms Parker how the promise could fit with a decision to allow logging in important koala habitats at Bermagui and in the Boambee State Forest, in the state's south and mid-north coast.

    'You might not understand how forestry agreements work. It seems as though you don't,' Ms Parker said.

    'Because they are agreed. We regulate and that logging protects koalas.'"
