Help protect wild forests
|A native forest
is a self-regenerating forest that has never been cut or planted
by humans. See the photographic evidence for yourself at http://forestcouncil.org/learn/aerial.

On May 5th, 2005, one of the most popular conservation policies
in American history was revoked by the Bush administration. Their
decision to abandon the landmark Roadless Area Conservation Rule,
and replace it with a convoluted petition process, leaves America's
last wild forests at risk from destructive commercial logging and
road building. This ill-conceived plan ignores the overwhelming
public support and forces state governors to petition the Department
of Agriculture to protect wild, roadless national forests in their
America's last roadless national forests belong to each and every
American. All our remaining roadless areas should be protected,
completely and permanently through reinstatement of the Roadless
Area Conservation Rule of 2001.
Now you can add your voice to the chorus of Americans who want
our national forest legacy protected from destructive commercial
logging and logging road construction. Sign the petition today!
It's quick, it's easy, and the message is clear; protect all of
the nearly 60 million acres of roadless wild national forests, reinstate
the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.
