About The Cause:
Old-growth forests are our natural heritage, and BC's south coast holds one of the last such ecosystems on Earth. Our ancient forests support a complex network of which we are all part, yet these forests continue to be logged at a rate that will soon lead to their extinction if we do not make a change. The Ancient Forest Alliance is a grassroots environmental organisation that works to foster knowledge and connection to these forests, as well as to advocate politically for their protection.
