As we reported earlier, experts of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) insist that Ukraine needs a national strategy of preservation of biodiversity and habitat.

"The country should obligatory deal with the protection of life and health of people but it is equally important to keep the plant and animal species, which disappear irrevocably. Thus, the illegal hunting and trade of rare animal species thrive in Ukraine. Such a trade becomes one of the most profitable businesses in the world – it takes the third of fourth place after drug, arms, and human trafficking. Our country does not stay aside. Besides, during the past years, the number of human interventions in different ecosystems has increased. They build highways with fences; the animals are isolated and deprived of the possibility to move freely and interbreed for multiplication,” the ecologists say.
