Help Protect Tongass National Forest: Stop the Clearcutting
They're about to start their chainsaws. Timber companies are trying to clearcut one of the most primeval wild places – and this is our last chance to stop them.
Alaska's Tongass National Forest is nothing short of magical: it contains centuries-old trees and one-of-a-kind wilderness, home to animals like Alexander Archipelago wolves and bald eagles. Your voice is needed to pressure Congress to bring an end to old growth logging and save the Tongass for our children and grandchildren.
Take action today to save the Tongass National Forest.
As the largest national forest, what happens in the Tongass matters to me. The Tongass is an American icon, and home to a variety of animals dependent on its health. Ecosystems like this are rare in the world and non-existent in the Lower 48 states, and none on the scale of the Tongass.
Congress needs to bring an end to industrial scale old growth logging on the Tongass, especially as our nation faces the worsening impacts of climate change. The Tongass, with its incredible capacity for carbon storage and its role as a carbon sink, presents us with a clear opportunity to do the right thing for the world’s climate and fulfill our country’s commitment to the Paris climate talks.
