The Tongass National Forest is a gem among our public lands, containing the largest remaining tracts of temperate rainforest in the world. Now Congress wants to let a single corporation cut the rarest and largest ancient trees in the forest, critical habitat for birds such as the Northern Goshawk and nesting Marbled Murrelets and other wildlife such as wolves and salmon.

Please urge your U.S. Senator to oppose this misguided legislation. You can send the sample letter below, or edit it with your own words to explain why protecting our last remaining ancient forests is important to you for even greater impact.

NOTE: Dear [Decision Maker] will be replaced with your Senator's name, and your name and address will automatically be added to the bottom of the letter.
