The Great Northern Forest
The Great Northern Forest encircles the globe, stretching through Russia, Scandinavia and North America. It contains nearly 25% of all trees on the planet, and is home to many Indigenous Peoples, as well as spectacular wildlife such as Siberian tigers, bears and wolves.
It is also vital in our defence against climate change. The trees and soil form the largest terrestrial store of carbon on Earth. Yet only 3% of this magnificent forest is protected. The main threat is from logging – nearly two-thirds is considered to be managed primarily for timber production.
It’s time to save the Great Northern Forest.
