By 19 March 2009 A Click for the Forest aims to raise the necessary funds to save Verle's old growth forest from logging. The current forest owner was going to log it already last winter but has agreed to give A Click for the Forest untill 19 March 2009 to raise enough funds (7 450 000 SEK including stamp duty and other costs) in order to buy it. If they don't succeed, the forest owner will log it straight away. They will do everything in their power to save this important habitat, and now more than ever they need YOUR help to succeed!
