Signed. I was married to an American Polish man once for 16 long years. LOL..Anyhoo, Saving Old Growth Forest is Important because we can learn from them, like why they have flourished so long. We have a small rainforest near the Pacific Coast hwy. here in America that I have Signed Petitons for and Our Magnificent Sequioa trees that are 1,000 years old. These old Forests must know something. Just listen to the trees, they do speak to you. Of course I believe this because I am a Native American. Thx. Cher.

The Bialowieza Forest is literally the last of its kind. It represents to the world an opportunity to experience a world like it may once have been. To exploit it as if it were a mere resource would be a gross misrepresentation of the Forest's real character. We humans ought never to deliberately obliterate the remains of a past that can never again be replicated. This Forest is a holy place, one in which one might actually begin to feel he or she belonged.

This ancient forest is an extraordinary natural treasure that must be preserved and protected. Forests are magical, mysterious places of beauty, homes for so many animal and plant species. In addition, they store carbon dioxide and thus, counteract global warming...This primeval forest has flourished since time immemorial and is special and sacred--let no human destroy/desecrate it!
