Stop Illegal Logging and Illegal Trade


Target: United States Congress
Goal: Protect our forests from illegal logging.

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If a tree is illegally chopped and stolen from a forest and no one is around to see it, does it leave an impact on our planet?

Trees, which filter carbon dioxide and produce oxygen for us to breathe, are some of our strongest defenses to climate disruption. But they’re disappearing, due in part to illegal logging and trade in illegally cut timber. In some of the most vulnerable countries, as much as 50-90% of all logging activity is done illegally, depleting priceless forests.

The Lacey Act helps curb illegal logging, and therefore climate disruption, and creates jobs in the U.S. forest products industry by eliminating illegal and unfair competition. Sign the petition below to ask your representative to support full funding and strong implementation of the Lacey Act!
