Protect old forest in the Mediterranean region

Barcelona - Spain

Within the Iberian region, a considerable percentage of the species that are the most threatened with the risk of extinction, depend on the survival and existence of old growth forests. The preservation of these types of forests is key to preserve and protect biodiversity, which depends on undisturbed or very little disturbed habitats.
