Support a worldwide end to unsustainable logging
We, the undersigned, support a moratorium on unsustainable logging worldwide - especially primary forests, which haven’t already been subjected to logging and other industrial activity.
Ensuring that the world’s forests are healthy, whole and wild is critical to staving off the worst impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss. The trees that make up forests absorb and store carbon dioxide. Logging releases that carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
The world’s forests also provide critical habitat to numerous species. This includes 68% of the world’s mammal species and 75% of bird species. When trees are logged, wildlife lose their home, and, too often, their lives.
For these reasons and more, we support an end to logging throughout Earth’s forests.
