In 50 years there may be no natural forests left in the world. To help prevent this, the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF) has begun a Forest For Life campaign on its Web site. Its agenda is to protect at least 10 per cent of the world's forests by the year 2000 and to certify 10 million hectares of well-managed forest by 1998. The 1,000-page site includes detailed maps, environmentally friendly shopping tips, and a list of email addresses of MPs who are obliged to respond. Created by Fish Design, the site is a must for budding environmentalists. (www.panda.org/forests4life).
