To: Minister of the Environment, Mr Rene Kokk

 

We support your call to private forest owners in Estonia, to follow the good example of the state (the State Forest Management organization) to follow the ban on logging in Spring and early Summer. We join the environmental organizations public letter and ask you to establish by the regulation of the Minister of the Environment the protection from logging of all Estonian forests during the bird nesting season.

In addition the arguments put forward by the environmental organizations, we want to draw attention to the negative impact that logging during the nesting season has on the tourism sector. Estonia is considered to be one of Europe´s most outstanding birdwatching and wildlife tourism destinations. The high season for the birdwatching tourism lasts from March to June. Felling the trees during the most important and delicate period for the birdlife has a devastating effect on not just the birds, but the competitiveness of the tourism economy and Estonia's reputation as a destination for the nature tourism.
