Europe's last Wilderness faces imminent destruction

Europe has cut down 99% of its forest. 0.5% of what is left is in Romania... and the machines are coming.

It is shocking and disturbing to think that Europe has cut down 99% of its forest. What remains is clearly massively important to conserve. A problem with this otherwise great video is that it appears to suggest that we can protect the wilderness by sending a bus to educate Romanian children. Sadly, it is not Romanian children sending in the machines to rip out the trees - they haven't yet been warped by the economic machine to such madness. Hopefully the European Nature Trust will also try some more direct and radical approaches. What do you think we should do? www.theeuropeannaturetrust.com Nature-Forest1
