Romania holds the Presidency of the EU-Council from January to June 2019. During these six months many people will travel to Romania for council meetings and other EU events. EuroNatur and Agent Green want to ensure, that the EU will not miss learning about the tragedy of Romania’s virgin forests – with public information using large billboards at transportation hubs, a photo exhibition and stickers to spread the message.

Ps.: Romania’s virgin forests urgently need all possible support! Illegal and “legal” logging is eradicating more and more precious virgin and old growth forests, also in protected areas. Recently, Agent Green published another episode of the video series “Out of Control” about the devastation of Romania’s national parks.
This time investigator Andrei Cirucanu went to Rodna national park and found himself in shocking scenes: brutally clear-cut slopes, natural rivers damaged by logging tractors tearing logs through the river beds. One reason for this tragedy is the absence of compensation payments to the private forest owners within the national parks.
But sadly, instead of sorting this mess and providing landowners with the compensation they certainly deserve, state forest enterprise Romsilva (in charge of the park administration) denies the destruction by logging and even calls the video to be using fake facts…
