Expanding the Ancient Forest Movement: Non-Traditional Allies

The Ancient Forest Alliance works to build a broad-based movement of support for the protection of old-growth forests by conducting outreach to “non-traditional allies” such as businesses, unions, faith groups, outdoor recreation groups, chambers of commerce, and tourism groups. By engaging a large cross-section of society, we aim to exert the maximum amount of pressure on the BC government to enact bold legislative changes to protect ancient forests. 

Thank you to over 100 groups and organizations that have signed resolutions in support of ancient forest protection so far! If you’re part of an organization that would like to join the movement and speak up old-growth please contact info@ancientforestalliance.org
