Hummers in Our Rain Forests?

As a regular subscriber to's newsletter, I felt this issue - March 30, 2004 - important enough to put online.

Dear Tara,

Thank you for receiving Animals and Environment alerts, because one of our most impressive and widely supported wilderness protection rules is under attack.

The historic Roadless Area Conservation Rule was a huge victory for all Americans. We as a nation submitted over 2.5 million public comments which ensures that our last wild forests will continue to provide clean drinking water for millions of Americans, wildlife habitat, and endless recreational opportunities.

These protections could be lost forever. Bush administration officials are planning to allow governors in the Lower 48 states to seek exemptions for national forests in their states, paving the way, quite literally, for opening pristine wilderness to logging and habitat fragmentation. Help here:

It's already started - on Dec. 23, at the behest of powerful timber companies, the Bush administration exempted our largest national forest, Alaska's Tongass Rainforest, from the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.

Here's what you need to do: Ask your governor to call on the Bush administration to protect our last wild forests by keeping the Roadless Rule intact and reinstating the rule in the Tongass.

Sign this petition and we'll deliver your message to your governor:

Thanks for your help,

Hilary Stamper
