The Ancient Forest Alliance (AFA) is a registered non-profit society dedicated to protecting the remarkable and endangered old-growth forests in BC while ensuring a sustainable, second-growth forestry industry. The AFA has grown rapidly since our founding in 2010, reaching international audiences through our hard-hitting advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns.
We specialize in public education and mobilization, building alliances with key allies, on the ground exploration and documentation of old-growth forests, research, and engaging governments to achieve policy change for BC’s ancient forests. In 2020, the provincial government promised to overhaul BC’s old-growth forest policies and to increase their protection. By joining the AFA at this pivotal time, you can be a driver of the new policies that will determine the fate of the remaining endangered old-growth forests in BC.
