Environmental activists list Šumava national park endangered localities

12-09-2014

Czech environmental activists on Friday published a list of localities in the Šumava national park that would be endangered in the event of a controversial bill on the park’s management coming into law. The lower house of Parliament is set to discuss the bill tabled by a group of Senators and approved by the upper chamber next week. Environmental groups have warned that the planned change places developers first and could lead to damage to valuable wildlife. Some 42 thousand people have signed a petition against the bill.
