Our most recent podcast is with Ayana Young, founder and host of the popular podcast, For The Wild. Ayana is a lover and protector of wild nature. She teaches us about empowered earth stewardship and leads biodiversity enhancement workshops. Ayana will discuss her experience with falling in love with old growth forests and the creation of her film, When Old Growth Ends. Please check it out here...https://forthewild.world/when-old-growth-ends.
(In this episode we discuss the threat of the Tongass National Forest. Last year the forest Service announced that the preferred action of the service at this time is a full exemption of the designated Roadless Rule. Which means the Tongass would lose protections against clear cutting by roadbuilding being allowed through this old growth forest. But GOOD NEWS...Earlier this month and after we created this podcast episode, the Federal Court ruled against the massive old growth rainforest logging plan in Alaska!

For The Wild is an anthology of the Anthropocene; focused on land-based protection, co-liberaton and intersectional storytelling rooted in a paradigm shift from human supremacy towards deep ecology.
