Cut through the noise on old-growth forests

Hi Paov,

When it comes to the fight to protect old-growth forests in B.C., the past few years have been busy ones.

Public reviews, reports and processes, endless promises and commitments, new maps and studies, and through it all a heartbreaking constant: the ongoing destruction of some of the most iconic ancient forests in the world.

Even for those of us working on the issue of old-growth logging full time, it can all be a lot to keep track of. Here at the Wilderness Committee, we’ve done our best to keep you informed on everything old-growth to help you separate the real progress from all the spin.

When we’re not doing that, we’re out on the ground, documenting logging in forests across B.C. and connecting First Nations and communities to build a powerful movement to protect these critical life-sustaining ecosystems.

And now, we’ve hired a new forest campaigner to help us in our mission. I’m thrilled to introduce all of you to Tobyn Neame! Tobyn is a quick study and has picked up the policy and political nuances of this issue at a lightning fast pace. I’m excited to see them step into the fray and stir up trouble for logging companies and the B.C. government alike.

With a busy spring and summer ahead, Tobyn has written an update for you, highlighting where things are at three-and-a-half years after the Old Growth Strategic Review and foreshadowing what we expect in the coming months.

Featuring illustrated timelines and informative charts, Tobyn’s blog is meticulously researched and features their own brand of style and wit.

Check out Tobyn’s blog here!

Please give this blog a read and share it with your friends and family. Stay tuned to hear from Tobyn as further developments unfold and, of course, for opportunities to speak up and take action at this critical time.

The current moment holds the potential for real progress for old-growth forests — progress made possible because of your efforts. We couldn’t be more grateful, and stand ready to keep up the fight until we win.

For the ancient forests,

Torrance Coste
