New legislation in Congress would stop President Trump’s assault on Alaska’s Tongass National Forest — often called the “Amazon of America” — and save its 800-year-old trees from destruction.
At almost 17 million acres, the Tongass is the heart of the world’s largest remaining intact temperate rainforest. It’s home to the Alexander Archipelago wolf, grizzly bears, salmon, and countless other wildlife species. And it plays a critical role in combatting climate change — the Tongass alone stores at least eight percent of the total carbon absorbed by all national forests in the lower 48 states. We must do everything we can to save this natural treasure.
