Remember;

without the destruction by the human species, it is a wonderful World !

We are delighted to be working with our friends at the Serbian Association for Conservation and Sustainable Development in highlighting the devastation to flora and fauna in Serbia with the current and future proposed construction of ski resort facilities at Stara Planina.

 

A petition about Stara Planina can be signed by clicking on the following link.

Please give just one minute of your time to sign this.

Please review some of our previous posts regarding this important campaign:

Our most recent post can be viewed via the following link.  This link is especially important as it provides a photo gallery of just some of the beautiful and endemic (native to a certain region) flora and fauna which are under threat by (current and proposed) construction work at Stara Planina :

https://serbiananimalsvoice.wordpress.com/2009/08/15/serbia-campaign-to-save-flora-and-fauna-at-stara-planina/

Over the past few weeks we have been working on our plans to help save Stara Planina, and we are now ready to move forward with the next phase of the campaign.

Your help is essential in making this effective.  It does not matter where in the world you reside; the more international supporters who take part in the campaign, the better.

At the end of this SAV post you will find a ‘Sample Letter’ relating to the environmental devastation caused by the construction work at Stara Planina.  It is a long letter, but it contains essential and legally important information which justifies why this construction should immediately be halted.  Please take time to read it and learn how many legally protected plant and animal species are under threat.

Below, you will find a ‘Contact Guide’ directory of worldwide Serbian embassies, including their web site address, postal address and more importantly, their e mail contact details.  The e mail addresses are especially important. 

Wherever you reside in the World, there will be a Serbian embassy either in or very near to your home country.  We would ask that you please:

1)                  Use the Serbian embassy information guide below to find your national or nearest Serbian embassy.

2)                   Once you have done this, make a copy of the sample letter given below also and paste it into your embassy link found in 1 above.

3)                  If you wish, you can attach one or more pictures of the work at Stara Planina from our gallery which are also provided on this post.

4)                  Fill in your name and your nationality at the very end of the sample letter.  Your address is not required to be given.

5)                  Click on ‘Send’ – your sample letter (and photos if attached) will then be sent to your national Serbian embassy.

If we can get campaigners to send letters to Serbian embassies all around the world, then the Serbian government will have no choice but to accept that there is an international outcry about what is happening to flora and fauna at Stara Planina.

Do not expect to get anything in return for any mail(s) you send

Past animal welfare campaign experience with the Serbian government has shown us that they tend to keep issues and policies and decisions very close to their chest.  Unlike other national governments, writing to campaigners about issues and informing them of the situation is not the policy with the Serbian government.

Thank you for your help and support with the campaign to save Stara Planina.

If you wish, and we would advise, you could also ‘CC’ your (sample) letter to the following addresses; these will be in addition to your embassy e mail address which you have selected earlier from the listing 

** COMPLETE BLOCK LISTING (Government and Media – see directly above) ** –

This is an additional ‘CC’ list to add to your embassy contact selected earlier (as above).

——————-  ** —————————————

Date: 

To: the Diplomatic representative of the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia,

Located in (Country) : *** ENTER your country HERE ***

I give my full support to the call that the Decree of mountain tourism development program on Mt. Stara Planina (Official Gazette of Republic of Serbia: No. 85/2007), now be declared as illegitemate.

The names of all animal and plant figures detailed within this letter are classified under their full scientific (species) names in the petition found at:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/save-staraplanina-petition

I request that the Government of Serbia, as a signatory of existing international environmental legislation, respects all existing Serbian and international laws and conventions associated with same. 

I request a full revision of the Spatial and Master Plan for Nature Park Stara Planina and I request full consideration be given to alternative tourism development (agro-ecotourism, ethno tourism) and other sustainable and legal measures for improving the quality of life of the Mt. Stara Planina rural communities.

I am aware that Canadian and Serbian companies / organisations jointly constructed the Master Plan for tourism development on Stara Planina including a pre-investment study with physical and technical characteristics of ski center. During their work, they completely ignored the necessary legal procedure to contact the Institute for Nature Protection, and by that ignored the environmental protection law 

These violations of the legal procedures broke the Law for Protection of Natural Environment by articles No. 34, No. 49, No. 51 and No. 127 (Official Gazette of Republic of Serbia: No. 66/91, No. 83/92, No. 53/93, No. 67/93 and No. 153/2004). 

Within the now proposed Nature Park at Stara Planina, will be constructed about 40 ski lifts, nearly 30  ski tracks (in total length of more then 100 km) and 2 large tourist complexes on locations which are of exceptional significance for conserving the biodiversity.

This huge tourism center will have capacity for up to 40.000 people (according to the Master Plan) and is situated on the shoulders of the highest parts of the mountain – peaks Midzor (2170m), Babin zub (1758m), Tupanar (1964m).  The cost of the project during several developing years is between 260 million and 300 million Euros.

One of the centres (the largest one) will be on one peat meadow Jabu Dko ravni, which opposes the Ramsar Convention for wet-lands which Serbia has ratified. Also, Dojkino vrelo peat meadow, also on the list of high priority localites for protection under Ramsar Convention, will be used as a water source for the future ski resort.

Unforunately, the Government of Serbia already has constructed the first ski lift in the Babin zub area in 2006, without any planning documents and violating Serbian legislation.  

The first ski track was opened on 30th December 2006 next to the peak Babin zub, causing huge erosion. Therefore, this was the first big illegal activity and destruction which was conducted on the Mt. Stara Planina by the Government of Serbia (Ministry of Infrastructure and Ministry of Economy and Regional Development).

On that occasion, 6 official laws of Republic of Serbia were violated: also additional to this were a Decree on the Protection of Park of Nature Stara planina (Official Gazette of Republic of Serbia: No. 19/97),  Law for Protection of Natural Environment and a Decree on the Protection of Natural Rarities.

On Babin Zub, ski lifts have already been constructed and enormous forest complexes have been cut through for planning ski routes.  On the barren steep mountainous ground, inevitable land slides and erosion have been initiated and it is only a question of time when the remaining thinned out fragments of century old spruce forests will also be damaged. Immeasurable destruction has already been made by widening the existing road to the ski lifts. Forest complexes have been destroyed and water errosion is already causing significant damage.

The amount of money which Republic of Serbia (Ministry of Infrastructure and Ministry of Economy and Regional Development) wants to invest only during 2008 in building ski paths, infrastructure and equipment for artificial snow and ski lifts, is 31,213,000 Euros. Such a sum is sufficient to provide 100,000 sheep, 500 tractors with  accessory machinery and finance of up to 20,000 Euros per Stara Planina house-hold for tourist categorization, house reconstruction and adaptation for ethno tourism. The stated amount is enough for supporting development of at least 500 house-holds willing to start agricultural or any other kind of production, processing or services (with 100% financing from the state),

However, it is neither possible to find evidence of social surveys of local communities nor details of local community consultation by the creators of the Spatial and Master Plan (Ministry of Infrastructure and Ministry of Economy and Regional Development for Stara planina. Since this is the case, it is not honest to claim transparency in realization of this project.

It is claimed that the Master Plan has been built upon detailed analysis of recognized potentials of Stara planina. Another serious anomaly of the project is to highlight that there is a 5 month season under snow at altitudes above 1700 metres. In recent years, the Balkan Peninsula is one of Europe’s region’s where climate change is most recognizable. Ironically, the opening of the first ski lift on the mountain on 30th December 2006 is remembered for the season when MINIMAL QUANTITIES of snow fell in Serbia.

Sadly however, on that day, illegal government activities became official. 

The Serbian Government proclaimed in 1997 Stara Planina as a Nature Park, enjoying the First Category of Protection – as of utmost importance for the country. 

Stara Planina also has the status of a significant International region. It is on the list for International Important Birds, on the list for International Important Plant Areas, on the list of Prime Butterfly Areas in Europe, on the preliminary list of Cross-border Biosphere Reserve under UNESCO protection (Man and Biosphere, UNESCO), on the list of Important Ramsar Sites (peat meadows), on the Emerald list (sites significant for conserving the European ecological network), and also on the list of cross-border protected region placed in the European programme Green Belt (IUCN), on the list of ProGEO geological heritage sites under The European Association for the Conservation of the Geological Heritage.

There are 344 moss species on Mt. Stara Planina. Among them are numerous species which are supposed to be protected by various international and Serbian laws. Species that live on decaying wood and peat meadows are very threatened. One great danger for these species are the hydro-geological works, because of great changes in the water balance of their habitat. Under great threat is Buxbaumia viridis, which is protected within the Bern Convention and Habitat Directive in the whole of Europe, because of habitat destruction (wet tree trunks) which is threatened because of the forest destruction.

With ski-centre construction on the Jabucko ravniste, the peat meadow and water usage from Dojkino vrelo peat meadow, two most important peat meadows will be destroyed. This is a direct threat for all peat meadow associated moss species.

Diversity of flora in the Serbian part of the Stara Planina mountain (the other half is in Bulgaria) with at least 1195 growing plant species, of which 116 (9,7% from all recorded species) are locally or regionally endemic. Endemics are the most threatened category and also the most important floristic elements for the biodiversity. An example of the danger of wild tourism development is seen in the near extinction of Winged Bell (Campanula calycialata) which grew only on Stara planina.  One part of this fragile population was destroyed during the first phases of the project.

On Stara Planina grow 9 species from the World Red List,

42 species are on the  European Red List of which 4 are CRITICALLY endangered, 3 species from the Habitat Directive (Gentiana lutea), 45 species from the CITES list (41 species of orchids), 179 species with the regional IUCN threat status, 14 species from the National Red List and 153 species from that are protected in various ways by the Serbian national legislature. Also, 21 plant species are LOCALLY CRITICALLY endangered (IUCN YUCR)

From the Decree on the Protection of Natural Rarities (Official Gazette of Republic of Serbia: No. 50/93) 40 species are present and therefore IT IS ILLEGAL to damage and destroy their habitat. The Bern Convention also protects 2 species growing on the mountainPeat meadows are habitats for dozens of endemic plant species. On the peat meadows of Stara Planina, grow about  50-70 endemic species on average, one of the most important is Sundew (Drosera rotundifolia), a very rare and very threatened insectivorous plant species which became extinct in other parts of Serbia. It should be remembered that mountain peat meadows today represent the most scarce and threatened World ecosystems. According to IUCN categorization, they are specified among fragile (very sensitive) ecosystems, in which the smallest changes of abiotic and biotic factors are CRITICAL (the disappearance of only 1-2 species can result in total COLLAPSE of the system.). 

Construction of ski tracks (which involves both logging and bulldozing activites) on fragile steep slopes will unavoidably begin a process of erosion; this has already happened on some parts of the mountain where development was illegally started.

On Stara Planina live 136 species of butterflies, of which 3 are protected by the Bern Convention, 4 are declared as national rarities by the Decree on the Protection of Natural Rarities by IUCN categorization.

Of the butterflies that live on Stara Planina, THERE ARE 6 ENDANGERED SPECIES.

From the European conservation concern, there are 14 species recorded which are crucially dependent on peat meadow vegetation – and at least three of the species are living on the territory of the planned mega ski resort (Babin zub, Midzor, Topli Do).

Considering fish fauna of the mountain (26 species), the most important is Brown Trout In addition, in the cold mountain rivers lives the Golden Loach (Sabanejewia aurata) which is under protection by the Decree on the Protection of Natural Rarities. Also, the Bern Convention issues protection of six fish species which also live in the streams and rivers of Stara Planina Mt.

With the use of mountain springs as water sources for the demands of proposed tourist accommodation facilities, severe damage to the current water balance is expected, and the resulting effects on aquatic animals will be extremely harmful. Numerous streams and small rivers that are fragile ecosystems will also be threatened by pollution from effluent and drainage.

On Stara Planina live 18 species of amphibians and reptiles, of which 10 are protected under the Bern Convention, while 8 are protected by the Decree on the Protection of Natural Rarities. It is almost certain that many species will be lost if  and when the works proceed.

So far, 206 bird species are recorded on Stara Planina. From that number, 140 bird species are protected by the Bern Convention, but some of them have ALREADY BECOME EXTINCT recently on Mt. Stara Planina due to human activity.

Localities are under consideration for development which will endanger nesting / bird species which have bred there in the recent past and which are currently protected by both the Bern Convention and the Decree on the Protection of Natural Rarities.

It is of great importance for every one of the above flora and fauna species that THEIR HABITAT REMAINS PRESERVED, and is not ruined by government ploitical ignorance of environmental legislation.

There are some 60 species of mammals on Stara Planina, among which some are very rare, including the Snow Vole (Chionomys nivalis), also an extremely rare living fossil of Tertiary origin which lives on the highest slopes of the mountain; it is directly threatened by the ski resort.

Together with Snow Vole, under the Decree on the Protection of Natural Rarities, an additional 19 mammal species and their habitat are protected. Under the direct threat of habitat destruction are the Lynx (Lynx lynx), Marbled Polecat Vormela peregusna, Mole Rat (Spalax leucodon), Suslik (Spermophilus citellus), Water Shrew (Neomys fodiens) and the Southern Water Shrew (Neomys anomalus). The Bern Convention, Apendix II is protecting 6 species: Suslik (S. citellus) Brown Bear (Ursus arctos), Marbled Polecat (Vormela peregusna), Grey Wolf (Canis lupus), Wild Cat (Felis silvestris) and Otter (Lutra lutra), while Apendix III also protects an additional 12 species.

Only the Grey Wolf and Wild Cat in Serbia are not protected by law and sadly enough, considered as game animals by Serbian hunters who have a love for the destruction of nature. Animals detailed above, especially those from Apendix II, are now seriously threatened with habitat destruction from the building and future existence of the ski resort.

According to many scientific findings, this kind of tourism is likely to be unsustainable due to climate change (higher warming temperatures and lower snow yield), strong competition in the region and diversity destruction which will take result.

It is vigorously recommended that an alternative of rural (agro / eco and ethnic) tourism should be developed and made profitable on a sustainable basis without  any major habitat destruction.

This would require less investment and would benefit and preserve the local communities. This kind of tourism would very much improve the quality of life of local people by enabling them to find additional outlets for their food and craft products and local services.

Eco-tourism has been previously recommended by IUCN as the only acceptable kind of tourism development of this region. Also the World Bank is now working on a project with local communities to improve ecological management of Stara Planina Nature Park (142,000 ha), biodiversity and sustainable natural resource-use incorporated in a major agricultural and rural development program, for example including c.30,000 ha of grasslands under sustainable grazing.

Finally, I feel that the current proposals and objectives set by the current government of Serbia for the development of Stara Planina ski resort facilities are generally illegal under existing environmental and flora / fauna protection legislation as previously detailed.

I will be presenting this information to my own national government political representatives asking them to express their concerns to your (Serbian) government with regard Stara Planina development.

The proposals for development of this facility are not acceptable; I ask you to stop all development, or face a possible legal challenge under the international legislations detailed above.

Yours truly,
