Help block a massive timber sale in the Alaskan rainforest

The Bush administration is moving ahead with a huge timber sale that would devastate some of the last remaining wild forests of Alaska's Kuiu Island, in our Tongass National Forest BioGem.

We need your help to stop this attack on the rainforest habitat of abundant populations of black bears and salmon, which is of vital importance to Native Alaskans.

Please go to //www.savebiogems.org/tongass/takeaction.asp and tell the Forest Service you oppose the Kuiu timber sale, which would use taxpayer dollars to build roads and clearcut this island refuge.

Last year, in response to an NRDC lawsuit, a federal judge ruled that a management plan calling for large-scale clearcut logging in the Tongass National Forest was illegal. Nonetheless, the Forest Service is now pushing forward with newly proposed timber sales on Kuiu Island and in other sensitive habitat areas.

Decades of clearcutting have already devastated much of Kuiu Island. Continued logging there would destroy key habitat for one of the highest densities of black bears in North America, as well as Sitka black-tailed deer, marten, wolves, several species of salmon and the rare Queen Charlotte goshawk.

This remote area of southeastern Alaska provided hunting, fishing and gathering grounds to Native Alaskans for hundreds of years.

Please go to //www.savebiogems.org/tongass/takeaction.asp right away and urge the Forest Service to cancel the Kuiu timber sale.

Thank you for taking action to save our last wild national forests.


Sincerely,

Frances Beinecke
President Natural Resources Defense Council
