Kras's biodiversity at risk due to afforestation

Divača, 24 October - Kras, a region in the south-west known for meadows and pastures in the past, is overgrowing rapidly and is thus at risk of losing its biodiversity, including some animal species, said experts gathered at a conference organised by the Škocjan Cave Park on Tuesday. They urged joint efforts to preserve grasslands and thus biodiversity.
