Our chance to protect the world’s forests.


The Wilderness Society has been at the forefront promoting the role nature can play in safeguarding our climate.

25% of greenhouse gas emissions are caused by logging and degrading forests and bushland – so protecting forests makes climate sense.

Stopping deforestation is, in principle, cheap and simple – don’t cut them down.

But it gets more complex when countries are asked to regulate the problem. Finding a solution to these issues is one of the strongest hopes for the Copenhagen summit.

Our special Copenhagen page has the latest from our Climate Change Campaigner Gemma Tillack via daily blogs from the climate summit, and you’ll be able to get the latest climate tweets on our Twitter page.
