This is Forest Ethics, a conservation organization devoted to the protection of forests. To date they’ve secured protection agreements for 65 million acres of forests and helped move billions of dollars of corporate buying towards environmentally responsible market solutions.

Recently the Canadian government has been conducting an unprecedented dismantling of environmental laws and review processes — heavily scrutinizing environmental groups, and attempting to limit the public’s ability to advocate strongly and oppose these attacks. In response, Forest Ethics created two independent nonprofit entities in Canada, ForestEthics Solutions Society and ForestEthics Advocacy Association, in April 2012. ForestEthics Solutions continues to craft world-renown environmental solutions such as the Great Bear Rainforest Agreement and the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement. ForestEthics Advocacy is able to devote an unlimited amount of its time and resources to environmental advocacy-to ensure that destructive projects and weakened environmental laws are vigorously and successfully opposed.

To the Last Drop – a Tar Sands Documentary

A great way to educate yourself about the issues surrounding the Alberta Tar Sands. A two-part documentary.

Scientists and doctors reveal pollution caused by Tar Sands development to be linked to exponentially high rates of cancer in the Athabasca region, and to deformed fish found in the river. Government and Industry are quick to refute their research, and to deny any responsibility for pollutants in the air and water adjacent to the Tar Sands project.

A revealing documentary that should be seen by everyone.
