Help Save Alaska's Tongass National Forest

Tongass Forest - help stop clear-cutting- for the Grateful Web

We need your urgent action to make sure that Congress stands firm against taxpayer subsidies for destroying America's greatest temperate rainforest.

 

Please go to http://www.savebiogems.org/tongass/takeaction right now and tell your senators and representative to protect the Tongass, a thriving habitat for grizzly bears, salmon runs, bald eagles and the elusive Alexander Archipelago wolf.

 

Thanks to pressure from you and other online activists, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in June to halt taxpayer subsidies for destructive new logging roads in Alaska's TongassNational Forest.

 

But Alaska's senior senator, Ted Stevens, is now working feverishly behind closed doors to make sure that this long-overdue legislation never sees the light of day. And he's drafting his own, underhanded, amendment to restrict sharply the public's ability to halt wasteful and devastating Tongass logging in court.

Over the last 25 years, more than 1 billion taxpayer dollars have been spent to clearcut and build roads through this irreplaceable BioGem.

 

NRDC activists like you have spoken out again and again against these wasteful handouts, which have enabled timber companies to expand their reach into the unspoiled heart of America's rainforest.

 

Please go to http://www.savebiogems.org/tongass/takeaction and demand that House and Senate negotiators stand up to Senator Stevens and his destructive logging-road subsidies in the Tongass!

 

Thank you for helping to defend this priceless rainforest refuge for imperiled Alaskan wildlife.
