Environmental Issues in Poland

I was reading an article about how the EU asked for an injunction to stop the building of a continental highway in the Rospuda Valley, because of its rare inhabitants such as the aquatic warbler bird, spotted eagles, lynx and wolves.

The construction of this highway would lead to an inevitable increase in commerce between eastern and western Europes.

My question is which is more important? The conservation of the land and its inhabitants or the building of the Polish Economy. I realize there is no clearcut answer for this, but I am interested in what others think.

The way it's done these days, the commerce is going to hurt you more than it helps you. I'd go with saving the environment.
