Noted and signed. The Rainforest Portal may not like my e-mail though. Feels like a drop of water on a fire that has burned out of control for much too long!

Noted and signed - ummm - do people realize that the really soft toilet paper is made from old growth trees? So a far more effective method of actually making a difference would be to vote with ones wallet, yes? I know that some of the last old growth forests in Canada were being cleared to make toilet paper - I suppose it's safe to assume the same is going on in the Congo. Crazy. Signed.

Thank you for sending the email to protect Earth's remaining primary forest. Would you please take a moment to send the following alert on the matter as well? There is no such thing as sustainable primary forest logging!

Thanks, Cal.

Signed. And when you say 'rain forest', most people think of the tropics....the don't even consider the Pacific Northwest. We have some of the most stunningly beautiful rainforests anywhere....and they are being cut down at an appalling rate of speed. There is so little of the old-growth left on Earth....it all needs to be saved.

Martha C. I totally agree with your comment. I know that on Vancouver Island, an old growth forest was discovered in 2009, called the Avatar Old Growth Forest and I hope the new Premier of British Columbia will agree to help to have it saved. They have already destroyed so much forrested area already.
Who wouldn't want trees saved that are a 1,000 years old???
