Romania tops EU countries in biodiversity value, PA official claims

Romania ranks first in Europe in terms of biodiversity and hosts the last 100 percent natural ecosystems on the continent, honorary ambassador of Romania's Protected Areas and Natural Parks Camelia Sucu told an event on Thursday that celebrated the European Day of Parks.

'Protected areas are a treasure not only to Romania, but also to Europe. Romania ranks first in Europe in terms of biodiversity value, and it also hosts the last 100 percent natural ecosystems on the continent. This is also the result of the existing 28 natural parks and reserves which administrations are making huge efforts to sustain and preserve this exceptional treasury amidst some problems called economic crisis. No value can be sustained only by financial efforts on the part of the Government and the people,' said Sucu.
