Europe‘s pioneer for the forests of the future


The Bavarian Forest national park is a pioneering example worldwide of particularly successful nature conservation. Free from the intervention of man, an impressive variety of species has been preserved here. The spectacular photos in this volume show the full beauty of the national park, while reports give insights into the current status of nature conservation, climate research and education projects. The book also contains interviews with well-known figures who identify with the aims of the park. The preface was written by UN Peace Ambassador Jane Goodall and underscores the international significance of this outstanding project.
