The whole of Białowieża Primeval Forest should be a national park.
Today we walked through the forest to protest against the government’s illegal logging. People came from all over Poland, and all walks of life to show their support for enlarging the national park. With the latest opinion polls showing that 2/3rds of Polish society is against the current logging plans, hopefully it’s only a matter of time before our natural heritage is properly protected.
