From the North American boreal forest to the Amazon, deforestation and degradation is rapidly erasing these biodiversity havens and natural carbon sinks. Every tree cut down means less habitat for wildlife and more carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
Many products we use every day come from our forests, but the way we produce them is recklessly unsustainable for these critical ecosystems.
Governors can encourage state departments and agencies to source from sustainably managed forests while avoiding products from already degraded ones. Tell your governor to act on forest protection now.
