Juan de Fuca Forest Watch
As Juan de Fuca regional residents living on unceded indigenous territory we share this in common:We are gravely troubled by the staggering rate and volume of deforestation in our region. We believe that our forests are being grossly mismanaged, and that these lands which should represent our commons have been unjustly expropriated in the name of fast profit for industry shareholders, at the expense of ecological sustainability and what is literally the birthright ground for future generations.Our vision is two-fold:1. An outright moratorium on old-growth logging.2. A consistent practice of sustainable forestry that is accountable (in plain language) to elected, regional representatives and that fosters increased related employment.To achieve these visions we will grow an active community of participation dedicated to reclaiming the intrinsic value of our forests.In so doing we might also redirect our attitudes and imaginations to a more just and viable economy.
