The forests and valleys of the Carpathians are home to more than two thousand unique plants. Rare Primula has recently faded (Heifel saffron, snowdrop, snowdrop, spring snowflake), and now, when it’s warm, other plants are appearing that will soon delight the eyes of people with their color and useful properties.
Carpathian plants are valuable not only for their beauty. It’s food for wild animals and also these plants have valuable medicinal properties. Plants have long been used to treat various diseases, use herbal teas for prevention, as well as vitamins. The next ecological and educational event of the Institute of Ecological and Religious Studies, which took place in the Synevyr National Nature Park, was dedicated to the theme of floral diversity of the Carpathians. Participants learned a lot of exciting and useful things about the world of plants. The story of rare species listed in the Red Book of Ukraine attracted special attention. They need special care and protection. There was also talk of typical species that have their own beneficial properties for humans and wildlife.
Equally important was communication about people’s attitudes toward biodiversity during the traveling. Nature is a great treasure, but it should be treated with love and care. It is crucial to remember the simple but vital rule of environmental ethics “Do no harm!”. We’ll coexist in harmony with the world around us by adhering to it. During the event, the children broadened their knowledge of Carpathian nature and had a good rest, inspired by the unique landscapes and vegetation of the Synevyr National Nature Park.
The event was held in cooperation with the Institute of Ecological and Religious Studies- IERS (headed by Alexander Bokotey) and the German Nature Conservation Union (#NABU), project coordinator Ivan Tymofeiev. https://www.instagram.com/p/CeBTT2NMplp/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
