Stop Sale of North Carolina's Hofmann Forest

Action: Stop Deforestation

February 24, 2014   Action Alert ID# 134

 

One of the Tar Heel State's greatest treasures is on the chopping block for development -- and wildlife like black bears, red wolves, and eastern diamondback rattlesnakes need your help now.

At almost 80,000 acres, Hofmann Forest is important for its size but also for its strategic location as a crossroads for habitat connectivity in eastern North Carolina. Bears and other species that disperse up and down the coast go through these woods -- and for those animals that are recovering, having places to move to is essential.

Three rivers flow out of Hofmann -- the Trent, the New and the White Oak -- and so endangered sturgeon and other fish would be harmed by the dramatic loss of water quality that would follow turning the forest to cropfields and golf courses.

And crucially, the sellers -- North Carolina State University -- failed to complete an environmental impact statement required for such a sale.

Take action now and urge Attorney General Roy Cooper to uphold our state's laws designed to protect wildlife; tell him to stop the sale of Hofmann Forest.
