Poland stands accused of having put Europe’s last remaining unspoiled forest in jeopardy. As a result, the nation now faces stiff fines for its continued illegal logging activities. Sign this petition to thank the E.U. for taking this threat seriously and holding the Polish government accountable.
Target: Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Union
Goal: Applaud the decision to fine Poland for illegal logging in Europe’s last remaining primeval forest.
The Bialowieza Forest is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, believed by scientists to be the last remaining vestige of forests that once covered most of Europe 8,000 years ago. In spite of this, Polish Minister of Environment Jan Szyszko called for a three-fold increase of logging in this critical forest habitat last year, enraging environmentalists and the global community as a whole.
