Greenpeace says Czechia not doing enough to protect old-growth forests

Czechia does not adequately protect its old-growth forests, the environmental organisation Greenpeace said on Wednesday. According to the organisation, the Czech Republic is violating the EU Natura 2000 Directive by failing to adequately protect its forests in the Natura 2000 network of sites of European importance.

The organisation has long drawn attention to the Czech authorities' misconduct in approving forest management plans that allow logging in the eastern Ore Mountains and has previously complained about this to the ombudsman, for example.
