Poland is planning to log one of the last primeval forests of Europe

One of the last remaining untouched forests in Europe will be opened up to logging activity , according to Poland ’s environment minister. Around 180,000 cubic meters (6.4 million cubic feet) of wood will be taken from Bialowieza Forest over the next decade, much to the disappointment of environmentalists and naturalists. While government officials say the logging efforts will be controlled and limited, others worry this may be the beginning of the end of Europe’s last primeval forest, as well as the wild creatures who call it home.
