The Valia-Kalda National Park, Greece

  • Gregory L. Tsunis (a1)


A dam is being built in Valia-Kalda, one of the ten national parks in Greece, despite the fact that this is not permissible under Greek law. Apart from the destruction caused by this activity, the park suffers from illegal hunting and over-grazing by livestock. The author, who was a member of two expeditions to Valia-Kalda in 1985 and 1986, describes the park, highlighting the features of special interest, and urges the Greek Government to safeguard it.
