Ancient Forest Alliance

Our thanks to the Ancient Forest Alliance who sent us this certificate to mark our contributions towards the new boardwalk being put in at Avatar Grove.

Obviously our thanks are not so much for the certificate as for the excellent and much needed work this pressure group is doing in maintaining and preserving the last remnants of ancient old growth forest on Vancouver Island.

Take a look at their latest discovery, the aptly named Big Lonely Doug, and you’ll see why they are so desperately needed. Please support them if you can.

Here’s a picture of Doug standing tall but lonely in the middle of a clearcut outside Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island’s west coast.
