The Tongass National Forest is the environmental and economic foundation of Southeast Alaska. It supports the region’s booming and profitable tourism, recreation and fishing industries. It provides vital habitat for wolves, deer, bears, salmon and countless other species. And people from all across the region depend on Tongass lands and waters for subsistence and their livelihoods.
But now the U.S. Forest Service wants to create a special rule undermining safeguards and protections for the wildlands of the Tongass as a gift to a couple of timber companies — and we need your help.
We need you to send a message telling the Forest Service to protect the Roadless Rule in Alaska and not put timber industry profits above the public interest.
