PETITION: Macedonia – No Dams in Mavrovo National Park!

 04/10/2014

Dam projects threaten the Mavrovo National Park and the last remaining population of the Balkan lynx. (photo: Joachim Flachs)One of the oldest national parks in Europe is under attack. With the financial support of the World Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the government of Macedonia intends to have two large hydropower plants built in the middle of a national park. The Mavrovo National Park provides habitat to the last remaining population of the Balkan Lynx. If these projects will be implemented as foreseen, this rare subspecies of the Eurasian Lynx may go extinct.

Call upon the banks and the Macedonian Prime Minister to stop the projects!
