Premier Marois, protect the Broadback Valley Endangered Forest.
Act now and help protect Quebec’s Endangered Broadback Valley Forest.
Situated deep in the heart of the Cree traditional territory, the Eeyou Istchee, the Endangered Broadback Valley Forest is one of the last remaining intact forests in Quebec. Greenpeace and the Cree First Nation have been working for years to protect the region’s stunning and sacred wilderness from logging.
While a temporary halt to logging was installed in 2011, there is insufficient permanent protection to ensure the long-term survival of the Broadback Valley Forest. Furthermore, in April 2013, the current moratorium on logging will expire, leaving the fate of the land in the hands of the Quebec government.
Companies like Resolute Forest Products could start building roads and logging the forest in less than a month’s time. If the Broadback Valley is left unprotected, we could see the disappearance of critical habitat for species like the threatened woodland caribou and endangered wolverine.
Help protect the Broadback and the species that call it home.
Write a letter to the premier of Quebec, Ms. Pauline Marois, asking her to support the Cree First Nation calls for permanent protection of the Broadback Valley Forest.
