Tell Secretary Perdue: Keep the Tongass National Forest protected
Dear Secretary Perdue,
The Tongass National Forest in Alaska is the world's largest temperate rainforest and one of America's most valuable wild spaces. Removing the Tongass from the protection of the Roadless Conservation Rule would threaten its ancient spruce, hemlock, and red and yellow cedars -- and the blacktail deer, brown bears, wolves, marbled murrelets and bald eagles that call the 17 million-acre forest home. I strongly urge you to keep the Tongass National Forest under the protection of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule.
