Olympic Committee: Stop Ancient Forest Destruction sign now

We have a choice to make:

Preserve a 500 year old ancient forest, home to four threatened species, 

or

Develop part of the ancient forest for an Olympic ski competition.

It seems like a no-brainer. And it should be. But right now, Olympic organisers in South Korea are developing part of an ancient forest, half a millennia old, into ski facilities for the 2018 Games.

It’s shortsighted, illogical and worst of all, irreversible. Once the precious forest is gone, it’s gone forever. But if we act now, we can still stop the permanent destruction of the forest. The International Olympic Committee laid down a mandate that this event should be a “Green Olympics” built and operated by principles of sustainability. Let's launch an enormous global outcry from every country participating in the Winter Olympics, and shame the International Olympic Committee to live up to their ideals.
