Ride along as the Wilderness Committee's Joe Foy drives up the Fire Mountain logging road to document a logging operation that is cutting down spotted owl old-growth forest habitat. Fire Mountain is located just north of Harrison Lake and is within Xa'xtsa Nation territory. The spotted owl is the most endangered bird species in Canada because so much of its habitat has already been logged. The Wilderness Committee is demanding an end to logging in spotted owl habitat so that this species can be brought back to healthy numbers. Find out how you can support the fight to save the spotted owl and other amazing wild creatures of the old-growth forests here:

Fancy meeting you here at the end of this article! Care to hang out together for a few more sentences?

The campaign you just read about is one of about 20 we’re actively working on at any given time. And the person who wrote this article is the same campaigner who’s asking you to take action, who’s calling on our legislators to make changes and who’s in the field to bring you photos, videos and stories documenting this issue.

Did you notice how we’re a bit distinct, that we’re not afraid to call out the industries or governments that threaten what’s wild? Unlike other groups, we’re almost 100 per cent* “people powered.” Individuals like you who care give what they can, when they can. No corporate or government funding restricts our strategies, our actions or our voice. That’s how we stay a lean, nimble and unequivocally relentless voice for wilderness, wildlife and the climate. That’s why we’d love it if you’d consider joining us by making a monthly donation to the Wilderness Committee today.

We’ve already established you like to read to the end, so here’s the fine print. It’s 96 per cent of our funding which comes from individuals like you and me. About four per cent of our total funding comes from a few grants from foundations. Every gift — no matter the size — has an impact and powers our work for nature.
