About This Collection

Conserving what's left, renewal, growing new ones, and hearing from the many peoples facing loss of their communities due to the mismanagement and exploitation of forests this special collection gets its start with the launch of the Global Forest Watch (GFW)

GFW is a project where the World Resource Institute brought together fourteen major sponsors, including Rebecca Moore of Google Earth who pioneered the use of mapping to protect our lands and people, enables our citizens to participate in and benefit from an "open data approach in putting decision-relevant information in the hands of governments, companies, NGOs, and the public." 

Related special collection on Earthsayers.tv is Biodiversity, Rights of Mother Earth, and the sustainability champion, Julia Butterfly.
