Let's save the spirit of the ancient forest

Let's save the spirit of the ancient forest r1 ... Dear Paov,

Only three spotted owls are left in the wild in Canada. They’re on the path to extirpation. Ongoing industrial logging is destroying their old-growth forest home.

But you and I know when our back is up against the wall, we don’t give up — we keep fighting.

This is our latest newspaper: Spotted Owl: Spirit of the Ancient Forest. In it, you'll learn about the desperate battle to stop the loss of the last remaining population of wild spotted owls located in southwest BC, on Spô’zêm (Spuzzum) Nation's traditional territory.

You’ll read about the dire situation facing other species that rely on these same old forests.

More than that, you’ll learn about the wonderful story of people coming together to make a stand for nature. Last year we travelled to the owl's ancient forest home with members of Spô’zêm Nation. We teamed up with lawyers at Ecojustice and put the federal government on notice. If the feds don’t take action as obligated under the federal Species at Risk Act to preserve the remaining old-growth forest critical habitat, we will take them to court.

In response, the feds came to the table and brought the province. Spô’zêm Nation made it crystal clear to BC they want all logging to halt in their territory to give the owls a chance to survive.

As a result of such strong support for habitat protection, BC just announced a hold on logging in the two valleys where the last spotted owls live.

That is amazing news! But there’s a catch — the promise to halt logging only lasts for one year. So now, more than ever, we need to fight as hard as we can. Will you join us and stand for the owls and their forest?

We have to make this halt on logging in the two valleys permanent — and we have to see all of the spotted owl's remaining old forest habitat fully protected.

Don’t delay — write today! We must strike while the iron is hot. And we can win this. We have to.
