Our country's last wild national forests remain at risk of logging, drilling and other development due to the Bush administration's efforts to undo the Roadless Area Conservation Rule. This landmark environmental policy protects nearly 60 million acres of the country's remaining wild forestland, including Alaska's Tongass National Forest, the only temperate rainforest in North America.
That is why we need your help. President Obama has been a strong supporter of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule, and we need his newly appointed Secretary of Agriculture to implement an immediate "time out" on road-building and other activities on these pristine national forestlands.
This immediate "time out" will provide protection to these wild forests until the necessary steps can be taken to fully reinstate the Roadless Rule. Please sign onto our letter today, and help preserve these heritage forests for future generations to enjoy.
