In the Kyiv region, two regional landscape parks were created: "Pryirpinya" in the Belogorodsk community on 347 hectares and "Studenikivskiy" on 2,104 hectares of the Studenikyvsk OTG.
They must preserve the floodplains of river basins and river valleys, reports the "Ukrainian Nature Conservation Group" on Facebook.
Eco-activists said that the "Pryirpinia" RLP will protect the complex of valleys of the Irpin, Bobrytsia and Trostinka rivers. Its area is planned to be significantly expanded. "Studenikivskiy" landscape park will preserve floodplain meadows of the Trubizh River basin, meadow-steppe areas, broad-leaved and pine forests, and protect populations of rare species of flora and fauna.
They emphasized that the scale of plowing of natural territories and afforestation of meadow and steppe areas is increasing every year.
"Natural habitats, together with protected species, are disappearing as a result of destructive economic activity. That is why we are very proud that we have such conscious communities," the message reads.
It is noted that communities initiated the creation of protected areas.
Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that Jeepers were installed in the Kyiv region racing tracks in nature reserves "Kozynskiy" and "Vasylkivski Carpathians", which destroys their unique nature.
As EcoPolitic previously reported, Kyiv residents demand to stop the construction of the "Gravity Park" residential complex with 13 high-rise buildings on 18 hectares of forest in the Sviatoshyn district bordering the "Holosiivskyi" national nature park.
