/ Bloody Good Things To Know / Education / The Wilderness Society

 

There is a lot focus on reducing our carbon footprint. By cutting our power usage, walking rather than driving, etc we are releasing less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere thus reducing global warming. However there is the other side of the cycle that gets less attention. Trees reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by converting it into oxygen as well as storing it as a “carbon bank”.

By logging our forests we are eliminating this side of the cycle. The Wilderness Society is a community-based environmental protection organisation. They work to safeguard our sources of clean water and air, to tackle devastating climate change, to create a safe future for life on Earth, and to give a better world to our children. The majority of our work is in Australia, with a strong focus on natural environments and the role they play in keeping our world safe.
