Save Our Forests

A lot of you may have already heard about the campaign to save England's ancient forests. The Government is planning on selling off a lot of national forests, forests can then be "auctioned and fenced off, run down, logged or turned into golf courses and holiday villages", do we really need to be doing this, in my opinion no we do not.

A lot of wildlife will be under threat because they depend upon the forests for food and shelter. Nightjars, deer, redstarts and insects are just a few examples of the species that could be under threat.

Some of you may have visited The Forest of Dean, Sherwood Forest, and the New Forest (attract a lot of tourists), and they under under threat because of the Governments plans. Once these forests are gone, they are gone, they will be lost forever.

The Woodland Trust and 38 Degrees are asking people to say petitions to stop this from happening, I have signed poth petitions, are you going to do the same? Click on the 2 pictures below and they will take you to the form that needs to be signed and the websites also give you more information if you wish to read before signing.

Signed both of these Anna; and e-mailed my local MP to ask how he is going to vote.
No reply; naturally :(

It may be worth emailing your local MP again.
