Protecting Natural Ecosystems

Our economies and our lives fundamentally depend on the natural ecosystems upon which life on earth is based. The forests in particular represent the “lungs of the earth”. Progressive, eco-system based forest stewardship is not an option, it is a requirement if we are to avert irreversible forest destruction.
