Don't Cut #Bialowieza Forest

Save Białowieża Forest in Poland:


INTRODUCING: @DlaPuszczy on Twitter and 

Camp for the Forest in Facebook


ILLEGAL LOGGING IS HAPPENING #TwitterMoment


Large scale state-sanctioned logging is destroying Europe's last primeval forest; Białowieża Forest in Poland. 


After years of efforts to limit the scale of logging and increase the amount of protected areas in this forest, the current Polish Government has taken a radically different direction. 


Using the outbreak of the spruce bark beetle as an excuse, intensive logging has begun in pristine parts of the Forest. Whereas, the Bark Beetle is actually a part of the forest's ancient biodiversity, and is now keeping modern day planted spruce in check. 


But what are the deepest reasons of a battle about Bialowieza Forest; asks Ryszard Kulik


In the first four months of 2017 over 10 thousand trees have been cut down in parts of the Forest with the oldest trees, over 100 years old. 


The recently imposed legal ban on entering major parts of the Forest serves to prevent citizen's witnessing the intensified logging and exercising any control. 


Białowieża Forest is the last natural forest of the European lowlands and is recognized by UNESCO as a #WorldHeritageSite. It is home to European Bison and thousands of other species, that are now in danger!


TAKE ACTION NOW!

1. Share this #Thunderclap forward and: GET INVOLVED

2. We are asking YOU; the citizen's journalists, to share the content of this Thunderclap, #TwitterMoments, pictures and breaking media, far and wide! 


NOTE: The 10th, and most recent BLOCKADE of the lumberjack harvester machines excluded all press coverage. It is therefore up to YOU to be the press.

💚 #Bialowieza Wilderness 🇵🇱

Love The Wilderness ➡️ Help Stop Illegal Logging In #Bialowieza Forest 🇵🇱

OUTSIDERS ASK: WHY is UNESCO World Heritage Site being felled?

Who Will Stop This Injustice?

In Poland groups of people are active, on the ground. They disagree with the mass logging taking place in the Bialowieza. They share a common standpoint with recognized scientists, environmental NGOs and the local community. What brings them all together is the commitment to protect the primeval wilderness. As a common good they are defending the forest against destructive extraction of timber to satisfy market greed.

Please post updates with the hashtag #SaveBialowieza and follow the main link in this thunderclap for more detailed local knowledge and get involved in giving help.
