EIA’s Forest Campaign Outreach Coordinator, Anne Middleton, has a guest column in The High Point Enterprise! This informative article details how worldwide illegal logging has declined as much as 25 percent over the past decade, with reductions as high as 50 percent to 75 percent in key producer countries. The report emphasized the role the U.S. Lacey Act plays in motivating importers of wood to ensure their product comes from viable sources. This is great news, since EIA played a key role in helping pass the Lacey Act!
