Help Save the Great Bear Rainforest

On Wednesday the 8th of July the M/V Starlet and her crew of five activists arrived at the Ingram-Mooto, a pristine watershed in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia, Canada. Of the original 353 large rainforest valleys that were once pristine, only 69 have survived the attack of multinational logging companies.

Western Forest Products (WFP) have recently moved in the chainsaws and bulldozers to the Ingram-Mooto. WFP is going against the wishes of the Hereditary Chiefs of the Heilsuk First Nation to stop all logging in this area. Every day activists from the Forest Action Network take images of the destruction caused to the old-growth forest by WFP with a digital camera. The pictures are then loaded up onto FAN's website. In May an action just like this stopped a logging operation in another pristine valley in the Greeat Bear Rainforest.
