Białowieża Forest: nature without borders
For the animals of the primeval Białowieża Forest, stretching from the north-eastern part of Poland into Belarus, there are no borders. Boars and wolves regularly make an appearance on both sides of the frontier. “Countries are walled off with solid fences, but animals dig under them and cross the border easily,” explained Karol Wojciechowski, who works on the Polish side in Białowieża National Park. Because of its unique biodiversity, the park is designated as a World Heritage Site.
