#22: NORTHWEST ANCIENT FOREST CAMPAIGN
|The Northwest Ancient
Forest Campaign has been designed to end forest habitat
fragmentation. The majority of U.S. citizens believe that natural
resources on federal lands should be conserved for responsible
recreation and tourism and habitat. These activities in the
national forest system create thirty times more jobs and generate more
jobs and generate thirty times more income than commercial logging.
|The majority of remaining
old growth forests exists on Federal lands. These few remaining
old growth forests should be preserved for their genetic heritage.
|The manner in which
commercial logging has been carried out in the Northwest national
forests has damaged and fragmented natural resources beyond recognition
by denuding habitat for all living things (including birds and mammals,
soil organisms, and our heritage of wild salmon).
|The Federation of Western
Outdoor Clubs endorses the Northwest Ancient Forest campaign effort to
end commercial logging of old growth from the national forests of the
Northern Spotted Owl region and commits itself to participate in the
campaign by educating and motivating its members to support the issue.
