Rainforest Alert Update

More than 3000 people have sent letters to the Premier of British Columbia to object to logging in the ancient temperate rainforest. And about 2000 people have sent letters to the CEO of International Forest Products. This is a great response in less than a week!

If you haven't sent a letter yet, you can read about the issue and send letters from:

If you have sent letters already, thank you very much. You can also send an e-card about this issue to your friends and colleagues by clicking on:

Please act now to save the forest and stand with Betty Krawczyk, Barney Kern, and millions of other people around the world who are opposed to logging in ancient forests.
