Dear Mark,

After years of public outcry in defense of Alaska’s Tongass National Forest, the U.S. Forest Service finally declared it would end clearcut logging of old-growth trees — many of which are centuries old. But a new plan just released by the agency doesn’t do that at all. It calls for 15 more years of business as usual for old-growth logging.

We need your help to protect this majestic temperate rainforest — by far America’s largest national forest.

The new plan to log ancient trees in the Tongass will destroy irreplaceable habitat for bears, salmon and wolves. This area is truly world class, but it’s being exploited beyond what it can sustain.

Act now to protect this national treasure from harmful old-growth logging. Tell the Forest Service to revise its draft plan and better manage the Tongass for wildlife.
