Last March, we travelled to northern Vancouver Island and hosted four public meetings about logging in the span of five days.
The topics? The loss of old-growth rainforests, raw log exports, and how unsustainable forestry is impacting ecosystems and communities up and down the Island. The meetings were tense, emotional, and exhausting.
There was pushback against a lot of our message, and many conversations were raw and difficult. We learned a ton.
In a few weeks, we’re going back to do it again.
