Action Alert: Save Argonaut Creek from old growth logging

The Argonaut Creek watershed north of Revelstoke is important habitat for the North Columbia caribou herd. The herd, at 150 members, is one of BC’s most viable wild populations of southern mountain caribou left. And now the government’s own logging agency, BC Timber Sales plans to sell off logging rights in the area and has already started to cut down massive old growth trees in order to build roads to access these cutblocks.

Our government has pledged to protect caribou and caribou habitat, but they will do neither if they allow logging in Argonaut Creek.

Please email BC Timber Sales, Canada, and the BC government to let them know that you would like to see the Argonaut Creek logging cancelled and the road reclaimed.

If they don’t, then federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change Jonathan Wilkinson must issue an emergency order under the Species at Risk Act to protect the area.

Send this letter to BCTS, provincial and federal government officials demanding an immediate stop to logging in the Argonaut Creek watershed.
