It's an amazing part of the world and host to thousands of unique species. Anything which can help preserve it is good!

Well, I say good for them. It's time we all started standing up to big companies instead of letting them walk all over us. Get those rich people and out them in their places and I mean all over the world.

My thoughts go out to these people as they stand up to RH. Companies like these are totally focussed on the money they can make out of the forests they log, they have no regard for the communities they are destroying or for the planet. Thank you Cal for the post because this kind of action needs to be made visible.
