  • Discovery Islands Forest Conservation Project

    Evergreen Alliance Staff

    Clearcut logging is degrading the ecological integrity of the Discovery Islands, contributing to the climate and biodiversity crises and substantially raising overall forest fire hazard. Yet the economic value of the few jobs this form of industrial forestry provides on the Discovery Islands is more than offset by the cost of public subsidization of the industry. What can be done to restore ecological integrity and create a more prosperous forest-based economy?

    The Discovery Islands Forest Conservation Project has undertaken to quantify the physical impacts of logging on these ecologically sensitive islands, as well as the economic costs and benefits. Were gathering leading-edge thinking about the creation of a new relationship with forests in which conservation and restoration of the ecological services provided by forests is the primary lens through which they are viewed. We are examining how these ideas could be applied here.

    This is the first community-based forest conservation project of the Evergreen Alliance. We hope to create more.
