Joint the Revived International Society of Tropical Foresters!
We hope you will be interested in joining the central International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF). The organization is being reactivated after a five-year hiatus. With its focus on being a communication network, ISTF can help you connect with others interested in tropical forests and forestry. ISTF was founded in the 1950s and “in response to a worldwide concern for the fate of tropical and subtropical forests, ISTF is committed to the protection, wise management and rational use of the world’s tropical forests”. So far, over 570 people from around the world have joined. For now, the organization will be dues-free, for simplicity and to encourage broad participation (although this is under discussion).
If you would like to join, please fill out the table at <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdy9FqCZ5Yj3TTA-mDJkgwm8n1jbCkEGlF…> GoogleForms ( <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdy9FqCZ5Yj3TTA-mDJkgwm8n1jbCkEGlF…> https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdy9FqCZ5Yj3TTA-mDJkgwm8n1jbCkEGlF… ).
