Carpathians for

the Conservationist

If one person were to narrate your life, would it be Sir David Attenborough? Do you have the biographies of Rachel Carson and Jane Goodall on your bookshelf along with handfuls of field guides? If you consider yourself a conservationist at heart, the Carpathians will not disappoint. As the first national park in Ukraine, the Carpathians National Nature Park covers an impressive 200 square miles of virgin forest. Not dissimilar to Teddy Roosevelt’s encounter with the Dakota Badlands or John Muir’s residency in Yosemite, the Carpathians are a cathedral to the grandeur of nature that can inspire a spiritual awakening. Whether you volunteer to pick up litter on occasion or have committed your life to environmental stewardship, you’ll discover opportunities in the Ukrainian Carparthians not only to appreciate their rich biodiversity but also to become involved in protecting it.
