We’ve just released analysis from old growth monitoring tool, Forest Eye, showing that more than half of the most at-risk old growth areas – where the B.C. government should have implemented an emergency logging ban two years ago – have now been destroyed.
Big industry players like Canfor, West Fraser, and Sinclar Group are the culprits that have been predominantly benefitting from this destruction. What used to be millions of hectares of some of the most biodiverse forest ecosystems on the planet, are today some of the most fragmented and devastated landscapes.
This damning evidence shows that there’s no time to waste – decision-makers must act now to save what’s left. With a provincial election year coming up in B.C., we have a huge opportunity to leverage Forest Eye, along with recent funding announcements for forest conservation, to secure old growth protections before these forests are gone forever.
Will you help renew international pressure for old growth and the communities that rely on them by sending an email to B.C. decision makers to deliver this irrefutable proof?
