Old growth logging is in the news cycle again, with the Fairy Creek blockade on Vancouver Island being the latest in the persistent debate on how to manage and protect old growth trees.

Much of the media coverage is glossing over the intricacies of old growth logging – why is it more valuable, why is it a risk to ecosystems and endangered species, and what tools exist for community members speaking out.

Charlotte Dawe, conservation and policy campaigner at the Wilderness Committee, joined Defender Radio for a primer on old growth forests and logging and how advocates can have their voices heard.
