Save Argentina’s Forests

The old growth forests of Argentina need our help.

A year ago, in conjunction with Greenpeace Argentina and 1.5 million people, there was a major movement to help stop the clear cutting of one of the nation’s beautiful natural non-renewable resources. The Ley de Bosques was put on hold as the senators voted for it to be thrown out and for an end to deforestation. But not much has happened since. It is now laying in limbo, waiting for the house of representatives to take action.

Living amongst some of the most awe-inspiring ancient forests of Argentina, this is a cause that I feel very strongly about. With our involvement, the people can help prevent the killing of another country treasure.

Greenpeace Argentina has set up a hotline that lets President/Queen Cristina hear your thoughts directly about this issue. With an upcoming election, the more people that express how important the natural forests are to health, tourism and Mother Nature, the more she will realize the vitality of ending the boycott of Ley del Bosques (which, indefinitely, assists in the government not finishing the needed legislation to help virgin forests and aids clear cutting companies in making a handsome profit off trees that our younger generations will never get the chance to know if we don’t act now).

By calling (011) 4000-5580, Monday – Friday, 10 am to 6 pm, you are able to reconfirm to the government the importance of this measure and how vital it is to stop the dismantling of pristine lands.
