Ancient Forest Legal Protection
As ancient forests the World over come crashing down, the world's governments and United Nations have marshalled their forces to – talk about it some more?! Global governments are failing miserably to protect the Earth's ancient forest heritage, and Forests.org supports calls for immediate agreements to protect ancient forests from any sort of industrial development wherever they are found.
New international law for ancient forest protection
Forest ministers from around the world will gather today to discuss the future of the forests at the start of the Fifth Conference of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF) at the UN's headquarters in New York. Greenpeace is calling on governments to bring an end to the UNFF talk-shop which to date has done nothing to protect the forests nor the communities or the biodiversity that they house and create a legally binding agreement that will ensure the protection of the world's last remaining ancient forests.
