Please can you help the Tongass National Forest, America's largest national forest? It's in Alaska.
I had an email this morning in my inbox from the Sierra Club, an organisation which was founded by conservationist John Muir in 1892.
The Tongass National Forest has been under a Roadless Rule protection in South East Alaska. The Trump Administration is going to remove that protection and allow clear cutting and road construction to go ahead. This could happen within the next couple of weeks if we don't put a stop to it.
Ways to get involved:
If you can donate, please do – and help the Sierra Club protect the last wild places from being criss-crossed by roads and clear cut.
Sign this Petition
The Alaska WIlderness League has a petition (which I think is for the US only because I couldn't sign it) asking the US Forest Service to continue its roadless protection of the area. Sign the petition with the Alaska Wilderness League here. You can also donate to help the League in its work.
It’s time to give nature and the natural world a break and for us all to stop destroying it and I'm talking world wide here, not just in one country.
Find out more about the damage the Trump Administration is ready to inflict on Alaska and how you can get involved at the Alaska Wilderness League's website here.
