It's The Drafter's Fault

Forestry Tasmania has admitted it accidentally logged an area of the Weilangta State Forest which was reserved as a habitat for a threatened species of parrot.

The company says a mapping error was to blame.

Greens Senator Bob Brown says it is a shameful piece of illegal logging and claims the error has further eroded the habitat of the rare and endangered swift parrot.
