100 volunteers will be able to join the first eco-action

In Zaporizhzhia, on Saturday, July 29, eco-activists will clean the "Khortytsia" nature reserve from the garbage that ended up on land due to the explosion of the Kakhovskaya HPP.

After the terrorist attack, 150 hectares of the former reservoir turned into a garbage desert covered with plastic, metal and other household waste, reports the public organization UAnimals on Facebook.

"The reserve "Khortytsia" is unique, and it must be preserved, no matter how hard the Russians tried to destroy all living things," the activists emphasized.

The report said that 100 volunteers who are ready to physically help clean Khortytsia will take part in the first eco-action.

Activists organize transport that will take volunteers to Khortytsia. They will also provide people with cleaning gloves and bags, drinking water and a first aid kit. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a snack that will not spoil in the sun, as well as a hat.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that in Zaporizhzhia, about 40 rusty barrels were removed from the bottom of the shallow Dnipro River, which had been lying on the bottom for many years and ended up on dry land due to the lowering of the water level after the Russians blew up the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, in Zaporizhzhia, eco-activists cleaned the washed-up coastline of the Dnieper on the island of Khortytsi from 8 cubic meters of garbage, including tires, plastic, tin and glass bottles, construction and household waste.
