Ancient Forest Alliance

The Ancient Forest Alliance (AFA) is a BC registered not-for-profit society, founded in 2010, working to protect BC’s endangered old-growth forests and to ensure a sustainable, second-growth forest industry.  The AFA works to document endangered ancient forests through photography and video; organizes hikes, rallies, and presentations; meets with key politicians and opinion leaders; organizes letter-writing and petition-drives; trains and supports local old-growth activist groups; and garners news media coverage to raise large-scale public awareness.
