    The only realistic way to conserve our forests is to apply sustainable forest management practices. Yet despite all that forests do for us, they continue to be sacrificed to unsustainable human consumption—at our own peril. Each year we lose 32 million acres (13 million hectares), 26 times the size of the Grand Canyon, or 60 acres per minute.
