Number of signatures for banning industrial logging in protective forests exceeded 100 thousand

21 march 2013
Today at 20:06 Moscow time the number of signatures for protective forests exceeded 100,000. Now WWF can present the legislative proposal to the State Duma of Russian Federation.

The amendments that WWF is insisting on intend to bring back the ban on industrial logging in protective forests, which was lifted in 2009-2010 for the first time in 70 years.

 WWF is grateful to all Russians who left their signatures for the protective forests. We also thank all our Earth Hour partners who supported WWF, including Phillips, Alfa-Bank, Swissotel Krasnye Holmy, Energodiagnostika, OJSC “IK RUSS-INVEST”, OJSC “VimpelCom” (TM “Beeline”) and other.

And, of course, WWF is grateful to the information partners of the Earth Hour that invited Russians to take part in the movement. RIA “Novosti”, “Metro” and Gazeta.ru newspapers are among the most important ones.

 It would have been impossible to achieve this goal without your support!
