WWF Bulgaria filed lawsuit for illegal logging

WWF Bulgaria has filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Environment and Water for logging violations

WWF Bulgaria has filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Environment and Water for logging violations on the territory of Pirin National Park. Under the pretext that sanitary felling is being carried out, trees may be removed in the park in violation of the Protected Areas Act.


Logging in the national park is the next threat to Pirin after the construction plans. WWF has warned that logging is often permitted without the necessary legal prerequisite. "To correct this vicious practice, we filed a lawsuit against one such sanitary clearing permit in the national park," said Dobromir Dobrinov of WWF Bulgaria.

Illigal Logging Mobile App

WWF Bulgaria is in a process of developing mobile app which will enable the public to easily send signals for illegal logging to the responsible institutions. Stay tuned to learn more about the app.

Both the lawsuit and the mobile app development wouldn't be possible without your support!

Thanks to you WWF believes that together we can build a future in which People live in Harmony with Nature!
