Although OurForests.org does not intend to replicate the examples below, we have provided these links to illustrate the principles behind some of the strategies that will be deployed on behalf of the Heritage Forests Campaign. Please note: In many cases we've had to take a "snap-shot" of a dynamic web site in order to illustrate the principles. If you'd like to delve further into any of these Web sites, you'll need to go to the site directly.

Rich Media: At Joe Cartoon, visitors download short interactive files which are extremely amusing. These files can be forwarded to friends and family via email, and always contain references back to the original site. We will create a similar (though less gruesome) interactive file to spread the word about OurForests.org.

emediacy is a program of the Technology project dedicated to developing and implementing strategic, innovative, internet-based projects that expand the current uses of communication and information technology in advocacy campaigns. In the first year of the program, emediacy successfully solicited over 190,000 email comments pressuring the Clinton Administration to protect roadless and wild areas in the U.S. National Forest system on behalf of the Heritage Forests Campaign. The Heritage Forests Campaign is an initiative of the Pew Charitable Trusts. Additional funding for this project was provided by the Turner Foundation and the W. Alton Jones Foundation.
