TAKE ACTION: Tongass Roadless Rule

Help defend America's national forests! Submit a comment to the U.S. Forest Service urging that they take 'No Action' on the newly proposed Alaska Roadless Rule, keeping the Roadless Rule protections intact for the Tongass National Forest.

The new proposal undermines the Roadless Rule, a law that has long protected much of our last remaining wild national forests from logging and other development across the country. In this case, the Tongass National Forest in Alaska is in the crosshairs. At almost 17 million acres, the Tongass is the nation's largest national forest and is among one of the world's few remaining relatively intact temperate rainforests. The Roadless Rule protects 9.3 million acres of breathtaking, undeveloped roadless land in the Tongass—twice the size of Yellowstone, Glacier, and Grand Canyon National Parks combined! Not only does this attack threaten habitat for wildlife like grizzly bears, moose and salmon, but it sets a bad precedent that could lead to logging and road construction in remote, wild forest areas across the nation. The Tongass National Forest is among the planet's best carbon sinks—under this proposal, old-growth trees that help us to mitigate climate change by storing vast amounts of carbon would be especially targeted. In addition, this rule could potentially undermine protection of the 5.4 million acres of roadless lands in Alaska's Chugach National Forest.
