Southern Cross Group
The Southern Cross Group is a group promoting incentives for better management of private native forests in Australia.
In 2006, Matthew Warren reported that: "The Southern Cross Group is proposing conservation cropping, rather than mandatory targets, to breach an impasse between industry and environmentalists on the first code to regulate private native forests in NSW. Modelled on water's Wentworth Group, the SCG includes the World Wildlife Fund's Jeff Sayer, World Conservation Union chief scientist Jeff McNeely, forestry scientists and representatives of the farm and forestry industries."
