Mr President, my question is to Senator Birmingham, the Minister representing the Minister for the Environment. Is the minister aware the Tasmanian government has approved logging in critical nesting habitat areas for the EPBC endangered-species-listed swift parrot and that that has been approved in direct contravention of expert scientific advice? That advice was that logging will not support the conservation of the species. Minister, is the government happy to stand by and watch the swift parrot's habitat logged to the bird's extinction?
