Roadless Areas - Oregon

ACTION DEADLINE: March 16, 2006

President
Bush has proposed huge cuts in key programs that protect animals and
habitat across the globe, including tropical forests. Now is the time
to tell your members of Congress how important these initiatives are to
you, before the March 16 deadline for members of Congress to push for
these programs.

The
president wants Congress to slash funding for the Global Environment
Facility (GEF), a little known but extremely important international
institution that supports conservation projects around the world. The
GEF has helped prevent conflicts over scarce water resources in the
Nile basin, expand the use of renewable energy in Mexico, and eliminate
dangerous pesticides in Africa. The United States has repeatedly
underpaid what it has pledged to the GEF. Now, the president wants to
make even deeper cuts.

In
addition, the president wants to reduce by more than half the funding
for implementation of the Tropical Forest Conservation Act. On the
positive side, the president has requested level funding for
international biodiversity conservation programs funded by the U.S.
Agency for International Development.

TAKE ACTION: Learn more and urge your members of Congress to support strong funding to protect nature around the globe.
RAINFOREST TROUBLE!

Rainforest Conservation Issues Mass Extinction Now

OrangutanIn anticipation of a global biodiversity meeting to be held in Brazil, the United Nations has released a new report that finds "humans have provoked the worst spate of extinctions since the dinosaurs were wiped out 65m years ago... the current extinction rate is up to 1,000 times faster than in the past". While these pronouncements are true, it is long past time to write reports and hold international gabfests. The biological and ecological basis for all life is threatened, and we need both international and personal responses that match the scale of the looming disaster. Is it all over? Is advanced life on Earth doomed due to disinterest and selfishness?

Ramping Up Amazon Logging

Amazon logging roadWith the blessing of Greenpeace and other mainstream ancient forest sell-outs, the Brazilian government has launched a new type of industrial rainforest logging. The new system copies a failed global forest management model, establishing "Sustainable Forest Districts" which are the equivalent of National Forests, where large scale "sustainable" industrial logging will occur. This comes as a new World Resources Institute report highlights building human impacts upon the Amazon that are greatly diminishing this vital global ecosystem engine as a contiguous, functional whole.
