DON'T DEVASTATE THIS PRIMEVAL FOREST... again

Bialowieza Forest has maintained a natural lifecycle for thousands of years. It naturally regulates its flora and fauna. In 2017 the Forest suffered extreme damage, but if we give it time it will be reborn. The logging was a huge tragedy but plantings would be the ultimate blow to the Forest.

Don't let this happen! Sign the appeal.

PLANTINGS DESTROY NATURAL HABITAT

Plantings create closed-off areas of the forest to protect the growing saplings and sections become off limits to animals and people for many years. Natural biodiversity gives the forest it's strength and provides resistance to unfavorable conditions or competition.

CLEARING AND PLANTINGS IN THE OLDEST PARTS OF THE FOREST IS ILLEGAL

The law defends the historic, natural parts of the Forest including areas outside the reserves and National Park. Where old trees have been unlawfully logged, planting new beds has no place. Leaving these areas as they are will allow the last lowland natural forest in Europe to renew itself.
