A new briefing paper by EuroNatur and Agent Green was published on May 15th 2019.
Romania still hosts thousands of hectares of potential virgin and old-growth forests. Besides their outstanding value as habitat to many species, including wolfs and bears, they play an important role for climate regulation. But still they are being logged in a rapid speed, even in protected areas. The briefing paper gives a good background to the values and threads of these forests, which timber companies profit most from the excessive use and it names necessary measures for the forest´s protection.
