Despite overwhelming public support for old growth forest protection and a clear roadmap based on science, Stand.earth Research Group just released shocking satellite images that reveal recent logging in the most at-risk old growth forests in B.C. as an initial piece of upcoming research.
The technical panel that was appointed by the B.C. government itself implored decision-makers to immediately pause logging in these areas months ago, but the B.C. NDP chose instead to leave the majority of these at-risk old growth forests on the chopping block.
The province’s recent announcement celebrating deferrals, even while logging continues in rare and at-risk old growth forests, shows how vulnerable the B.C. NDP is on this issue. After a flood of public pressure last year forced MLAs across the province to take action on old growth protection, this is an opportune moment to remind our decision-makers that their constituents still care deeply about protecting forests – and we won't rest until they meet their promises and secure deferrals for ALL at-risk old growth.
