Defend ancient forests

Urgent! Our ancient forest ecosystems are at risk!

Call for an immediate moratorium on old growth logging while the 14 recommendations of the Old Growth Review Panel are implemented.

In 2020 the Old Growth Review Panel called for a paradigm shift in how we manage BC's forests. We need to recognize that ancient forests have intrinsic value for all living things and should be managed for ecosystem health, not just for timber sales.

We cannot talk and log. Less than three percent of BC's ancient trees are left. Once these ancient forest ecosystems are gone, they're gone forever.
