To the attention of all tree huggers, mountain hikers, picnic goers and river fans!
Now saving the forests is in your hands. Literally!
All you need is a smartphone and mobile data.
WWF Bulgaria is proud to present the first ever mobile app which empower people to submit a signal to the authorities in case of illegal loggings and transport of timber.
“Spasi gorata” (Save the forest) is free of charge and can be downloaded from Google Play.
Income from illegal logging per year is estimated at around 150 million BGN per year according to a report of WWF Bulgaria. This is a significant financial loss for the state budget in addition to the inflicted damages on the ecosystems.
The more people can contribute to documenting crime in the forests and informing the responsible institutions, the better chances we have to prevent further illegal actions.
So, don’t forget to charge your phone next time you are up for a hike and watch for possible violations.
