Forests help stabilize the climate, sustain a diversity of life, provide economic opportunity and are the source of culture for many Indigenous Peoples. Across the globe – from Canada to Indonesia – large areas of forests are being degraded, due in large part to unsustainable industrial activities. The need to protect those forests that remain is more urgent than ever. We need to build a movement of people calling for forest protection, species survival and taking action against climate change. Together we can be forest defenders and work towards their restoration for the benefit of all life on earth.
