Center for Biological Diversity
SAN FRANCISCO— A report released today (see PDF) outlines the important ecological benefits of last summer’s Rim fire in northern California and exposes how a U.S. Forest Service plan to allow 30,000 acres of logging in the burned area will cause significant harm to wildlife, water and the regrowing forest. The report, Nourished by Wildfire: The Ecological Benefits of the Rim Fire and the Threat of Salvage Logging, explains how fires are essential for maintaining biological diversity in the Sierra Nevada ecosystem. It was produced by the Center for Biological Diversity and the John Muir Project.
