Laurissilva Forest Protection Gains Momentum

On Friday, the ‘DPFL- Civic Association for the Defense and Protection of the Laurissilva Forest,’ a Non-Governmental Organisation for the Environment, will publicly present the contents and objectives of their findings in response to the Regional Governments decision to turn the Caminho das Ginjas dirt track into a permanent structure, as well as clear three metre verges on both sides of the road.  

It should be noted that the contents of the complaint and request for assistance will be addressed to UNESCO, but will also circulate equally to other internationally relevant entities, namely the European Commission, Secretary General of the United Nations, President of the Portuguese Republic, Executive Vice President from the European Commission responsible for the European Ecological Pact, European Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, IUCN, UNESCO World Heritage Convention, European Environment Agency, Foundation for Environmental Education, World Wide Fund for Nature and the Ministry of Environment and Energy Transition.
