ROMANIA’s NATIONAL PARKS DELIBERATELY DESTROYED BY STATE FORESTRY MANAGER
Investigative video footage reveals scandalous logging in Romania’s Cheile Nerei-Beusnita National Park
Bucharest – 19 September 2018 — New video evidence published today by environmental NGOs Agent Green and EuroNatur Foundation clearly demonstrates that forest destruction in Romania’s Cheile Nerei-Beusnita National Park is comprehensively out of control. Logging of old growth forests is being deliberately driven by state forest enterprise Romsilva. Parts of the park's old growth beech forests have been inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its "outstanding universal value“. However, at least 60 percent of the national park is being treated like a logging site, not as a protected area. Agent Green and EuroNatur Foundation call on the Romanian Ministry for Environment to immediately stop commercial logging in national parks and to dismiss Romsilva from managing protected areas.
