Help Save Peru's Last Mahagonay Forests

Peru's lush rainforests, including our Tahuamanú BioGem, are home to some of the last remaining concentrations of big-leaf mahogany in Latin America. Yet despite the scarcity of this tropical species, the Peruvian government has failed to enforce national forestry laws and logging bans. As a result, nearly all of the country's export mahogany is harvested illegally. The United States imports 80 percent of this wood, and furniture manufacturers have no means of determining whether they are buying legally or illegally logged mahogany. Please join our fight to curb U.S. mahogany demand, which is driving the destruction of rainforests that support Peru's indigenous people, as well as endangering the squirrel monkey, the giant otter and other rainforest wildlife.

Urge Missouri-based Furniture Brands International not to buy Peruvian mahogany unless and until it can ensure -- through a clear system put in place by the Peruvian government -- that this mahogany is harvested legally.
