I normally don’t make posts like these to my IG, but old growth forests are some of the most amazing places on earth, and are irreplaceable. It would be an absolute *sin* to harm such a place. If you’ve never been to an old growth forest, please go at least once in your life. It’s a therapeutic and deeply spiritual experience.
Under Trump’s watch, the U.S. Forest Service is pushing to allow destructive logging and road construction in Alaska’s #TongassNationalForest
— the country’s largest wild forest, and home to countless groves of irreplaceable old growth trees, some more than 800 years old. NRDC has been fighting a decades-long battle to defend the #Tongass
and other roadless federal forestlands from being ripped open by corporate interests and industrialization, and we will continue to fight this new proposal. But the clock is ticking: There are just two days until the public comment period ends this Monday, October 15. Raise your voice before it’s too late at the link in our profile. #ProtectTheTongass
