|Logging? What logging?|
It is a fact that life is complicated, with many distractions. But let us look at the facts of what we are losing while being consumed by all our trivial things.
- Vancouver Island has lost over 75% of its productive old growth forests, including 90% of the valley bottoms where the biggest trees and richest biodiversity are found.
- continued old growth logging below 30% of intact forests creates a high probability of massive species loss
- 99% of the old growth coastal Douglas-fir forest on Vancouver Island has been logged already
- some of the biggest, tallest, and oldest trees on earth are still being logged in British Columbia
Governments and multinational logging companies are planning on taking 100% of our original forests. If we don't wake up and stop them, who will?
