We're working to protect the world's largest intact coastal rainforest. Will you make a secure, online donation now to support this critical landscape?
In the last century, unsustainable logging, fishing and other extractive industries have eroded old-growth forests, diminished wild salmon runs and frayed the close-knit web of life on which people and nature depend. Boom-and-bust cycles have created widespread unemployment and lack of economic opportunity that threaten the landscape and local communities. Unreconciled issues around resource decision-making authority and a scarcity of upcoming local leadership have created uncertainty about how to move forward. At the same time, population growth and the increasing demand for resources place escalating pressures on the region. Without a clear path to a sustainable future for people, nature and economies, we stand to lose one of the world’s last great coastal rainforests.
