I wonder if we could get major organizations to team up to help out? World Wildlife Federation, Green Peace, ForestEthics, Forests Now, The Nature Conservancy, Ancient Forest International, Audobon, Defenders of Wildlife, National Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club, World Land Trust, etc. Some of these are centered on the US, but in this instance the whole world is home. Perhaps if we could convince each one to donate just a little it'll make a difference.
