SynopsisHealthy forests are essential for our climate and the diversity of flora and fauna.
The Fight Against...
• Climate Change
• Illegal Logging
“The forest stands black and silent,” wrote Matthias Claudius in 1779. 250 years ago forests were still healthy in most European countries. Unfortunately, this is not the case today. This habitat for countless animal and plant species is in grave danger. We need the forests, as they provide us with valuable raw minerals, stores water, and ensures a good climate. In recent years, drought and heat have been hurting the trees, pests have been multiplying, and illegal logging has been filling the pockets of criminal organizations. Even state-subsidized clear-cutting increases the profits of the deforestation industry. For these reasons, more and more people are fighting for their forests. In our series, we follow passionate individuals that are doing everything in their power to preserve their forests.
