Stop illegal logging!

80% of the rainforest has already been destroyed or degraded. What remains is still under threat. The World Bank published a report indicating that the illegal timber trade was worth $10-15bn (£7.5-11bn) per year globally. Conservation groups working say enforcement of logging laws is virtually non-existent in many areas. 1.6 billion people worldwide depend on forests for their livelihood and 60 million indigenous peoples depend on forests for their subsistence. Evolved forests, over thousands of years old, are unique and vital habitats for millions of plant and animal species, and home to millions of people who depend on them for survival.
