Protection of virgin forests in Romania

Virgin forests do not only grow in the amazon or on the islands of Indonesia; there are still a few in Europe left. Large, untouched forests have survived in the Romanian Carpathian mountains - a global natural heritage of invaluable ecological value.

These last paradise forests in the European Union are disappearing with alarming speed. Ruthless greed, political ignorance and large-scale corruption are endangering these European natural treasures. Time is running out.  If immediate action is not taken, the remaining virgin forests will soon be gone, lost forever.

This is why the EuroNatur Foundation and the Romanian environmental protection organisation, Agent Green, have teamed up with other organisations and committed and passionate individuals to draw attention to the immediate threat to this unique natural European heritage and to fight for its protection.

Christmas campaign 2017: Save the Carpathian primeval forests!

The 28th November is #GivingTuesday. The Giving Tuesday campaign is a movement designed to counterbalance the pre-Christmas consumer frenzy by encouraging people across the world to get involved in social issues and putting the spotlight on the idea of “giving”. We use this day to start our Christmas campaign.
