We've Got Spirit, How 'Bout You?
Enviros are campaigning hard to stop logging in the Great Bear Rainforest on the coast of British Columbia, Canada, a biologically rich area that is the only home of the Spirit Bear, a rare white subspecies of black bear. Meanwhile, some activists who have been battling to end old-growth logging on the coast have served notice that their next campaign will be to end all old-growth logging in B.C. In a June 5 letter to West Fraser Timber, the Coastal Rainforest Coalition warned the company — which has sold its coastal logging operations but has extensive holdings in the B.C. interior — that it would be a target of protests unless it joins other timber companies that have been negotiating for months with enviros to reach a truce in the B.C. logging wars.
