Encompassing an area that includes parts of both Poland and Belarus, the 150,000 hectare Bialowieza Forest, Europe's last remaining ancient woodlands, has lost 50 centimeters in groundwater levels over the past 30 years and is seeing weakness in some shallow-rooted species like the majestic spruce.

The forest was designated as a United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site in 1979 and is home to rare mammals including 300 European Bison. Poland is currently considering forest expansion to further protect natural habitats.

Poland, we applaud your commitment to preserving this magnificent reserve. Let us all stem climate change worldwide by adopting the organic vegan, meaning animal-free, diet.

Supreme Master Ching Hai has long reminded of the significance of our actions, as during a September 1994 lecture in Singapore where she explained the benefits of a virtuous lifestyle for the welfare of the Earth.

Supreme Master Ching Hai: Recently, our world has a lot of disasters like burning forests, and then that reduces a lot of the rain. And that in turn also heats up our planet. And then the more it heats up, the more dry.
The more dry, the less trees. The less trees, the less rain. The less rain, the less trees, and this is the devil’s circle. And every corner of the earth, affects the whole planet.

Therefore, if you yourself; your heart, your mind, your speech, your actions are pure, how much beneficial can it be to this planet?  The vegetarian (vegan) diet is good for you; it would purify your spirit, purify your aura, and make you clear, inner and outside, and protect you.
