Jarrahdale Forest Protectors

Jarrahdale Forest Protectors

Jarrahdale Forest Protectors Inc (JFP) is a local organisation whose objective is to establish a zone in the Northern Jarrah Forest (NJF) to preserve its ecology for the benefit of our community and future generations.

AIMS

To inform the public and key decision-makers of what is happening in the forests of Jarrahdale and the imminent risk of losing important biodiversity, cultural and heritage values of the NJF. To protect a large section of the NJF near Jarrahdale for future generations.

GOALS

In the past, there has been extensive logging and mining in the Jarrahdale area. The intention of JFP is to preserve a section of easily accessible forest in this high rainfall location so that it may recover from the effects of past activities, to remain as a restored forest as a legacy for all people.

BENEFITS

  • Preservation of the existing forest to nurture:
    Bio-diversity plants, animals and insects
  • Rainfall retention, water production
  • High-quality jarrah forest
  • Carbon sequestration
  • Honey production

+ Providing to the community

  • Recreational activities both passive and active
  • Employment opportunities
  • Education and research
  • Health benefits
  • Tourism

The forests of the 21st century will be valued most significantly for their natural beauty, biodiversity, flora and fauna habitat, passive recreation, bush walks, tracks and trails, clean water, as well as for their aesthetic, cultural and spiritual benefits.
