CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

Bulgaria is not a big country, but it has a very varied and complex climate due to its mountainous relief, connection to various climatic zones, and diverse geology and hydrology. These conditions also mean it has some of the highest biological diversity in Europe. The mountains, grasslands and forests are home to over 100 different mammal species, including the stunning Eurasian lynx, brown bears and wolves. Bulgaria has 426 bird species and can show off the mighty eastern imperial eagle and imposing cinereous vulture (both of which are threatened species). 

Bulgaria still bears marks from its lightning-fast industrialisation and position as one of the communist block’s most intensive powerhouses. Air pollution is the highest in the EU, and industrial development has led to problems such as pollution from chemicals and heavy metals, deforestation, and sewage in waterways.

More than 35% of the land area is covered by forests. Bulgarian wilderness struck a massive victory when a project to infringe on the Pirin mountain protected site for a ski resort development project was cancelled following public pressure. 

It was an environmental protest in October of 1989 that sparked the transition to democracy. In 2013 again, protests that started in defence of the environment spiralled into much larger political protest and changed again the political system in place. The attachment of Bulgarians to their beautiful countryside is neither faint nor fake. The civil society is pushing for change!
