The Tongass is full of fjords, mountains and dense groves of trees older than America. If we don't protect this misty green wilderness, it will remain vulnerable to vast, irreparable damage. Once these towering trees fall, there is nothing we can do to replace their role in this delicate ecosystem.
The Tongass is also important for preventing climate change: It's the largest carbon sink in North America. In order to protect this old-growth forest and its wildlife from logging, we need to join our voices and we need to be loud.
If we don't voice our support for fully protecting the Tongass today, the logging industry could ruin the 9.2 million acres of lush habitat, and we could lose these irreplaceable trees forever.
