altForests complexes – dry pine forests and numerous lakes create a specific microclimate that is very useful for people. Pine forests generate germicidal ethereal oils and phytoncides. Dry, clean air drifts from the hills into proglacial stream valleys and it has a soothing effect for newcomers and inhabitants of this region. A man in a forest causes the same impression and confusion as an elk or a boar in Marszałkowska Street in Warsaw. The presence of a human being in a forest means confusion, panic, shock and disturbance. Different scientific researches prove that forest animals shocked by too frequent contact with a man have got seven times as large metabolism. Birds do not feed their nestling, mammals die because of hunger. But we have to protect animals. There is a herd of deer that consists of 100 animals, a herd of roe-deer – over 2000 specimen and a herd of boars – about 1000 animals. In the Sława region there is also a population of 26 beavers.alt Foresters and hunters know the places of their presence. Also birds lovers have got a good observation place in the area of Sława. There are a lot of cranes, herons, numerous birds of prey such as: harriers, kites, buzzards as well as ernes in the winter. These priceless natural resources have to be protected. Everybody who knows its value has a duty to do that.
