Help Save North Carolina's Hoffman Forest

Action: Stop Deforestation

June 17, 2014   Action Alert ID# 152

 

Hofmann Forest is the largest university-owned research and teaching forest in the world, and has been owned by North Carolina State University for 80 years.

Hofmann Forest serves as the headwaters for the Trent, New and White Oak rivers, where endangered sturgeon live. It's also located at a critical junction for wildlife movement in eastern North Carolina, connecting Croatan National Forest and Camp Lejeune to other refuges to the north and south.

But the university has decided to put the forest up for sale. Losing the forest will hurt populations of black bears and eastern diamondback rattlesnakes, and it will make recovery of precious, federally protected red wolves and red-cockaded woodpeckers even more difficult.

Converting the forest to cornfields, golf courses and shopping malls will pollute the rivers and imperil wildlife.

Please defend Hofmann Forest now by urging to the leaders of North Carolina State University to stop the sale.
