Stop Expanded Logging in Alaska's Tongass National Forest

This petition had 34,877 supporters

Legislation working its way through Congress could allow a single corporation, Sealaska, to log some of the best, oldest, most biologically-rich areas left in America's Rainforest, the Tongass National Forest in Alaska.

Sealaska Corporation, which has a history of clearcutting its lands, is seeking ownership of some of the most ecologically and biologically diverse parts of the Tongass National Forest. In fact, the lands targeted by Sealaska have more than ten times the habitat value of other Tongass forest land!

Help us stop this over-reaching legislation and protect the forest, along with the communities and wildlife that depend on it.
