Invaluable natural resources require special legal protection. Their protection often does not fully correspond with their unique character. The protection of invaluable natural resources should be modelled in such a way as to provide full protection of their uniqueness, regardless of unstable political and legal circumstances. The authors argue for the implementation of such a solution in the example of the Bialowieza Forest. Under Polish and Belarusian laws, international law and partially also European Union law, the Forest is entangled in a complex socio-economic turnover, which often proves controversial or even problematical. The Bialowieza Forest is a complete natural system, so it ought to be protected as a whole. A well-planned international regulation of a localised nature (with Poland and Belarus as well as countries and international organisations willing to assume co-responsibility for its good as its parties), supported by appropriate social education, are strongly recommended.
