The Bush administration revoked the roadless status of the Tongass allowing timber companies to build roads and clear cut the forest to the detriment of the environment and the animals.Locations:Alaska-Kupreanof Island-North America-Tongass National Forest-United States of AmericaDate:4 Aug, 2004Credit:© Les Stone / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3072px X 2048pxKeywords:Danger-Day-Forests (campaign title)-Forests (topography)-Outdoors-Roads-Signs-TreesShoot:Forest Blockade Action TongassGreenpeace activists and local residents stop road building and timber operations in the Tongass National Forest in an area of the rainforest where clear-cutting is taking place. They display a banner reading "Ancient Forest Protection Starts Here" and they suspend a specially engineered structure high over logging roads in pristine forest that is slated to be cut. Other volunteers place themselves in the path of trucks and bulldozers, while a group of Alaskans lock themselves to road building equipment. Greenpeace has set up these stations as part of its escalating campaign for a moratorium on industrial logging on public lands and for greater protection and restoration of endangered forests.
