Protections for Pacific Northwest Forests

12 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

Yesterday, the White House moved to cut protection for 3.4 million acres of critical Northern Spotted Owl (among other species) habitat, opening an area of forest the size of Yellowstone and Olympic National parks for logging. These forests are dense multi-layered canopies and take 150-200 years to develop. These iconic Pacific Northwest habitats are ecologically important and help offset climate change by storing carbon. Today, less than 10% of Oregon's old-growth forests remain. We urge the incoming administration to challenge this decision and preserve the habitats and ecosystems we depend on. Thank you.
