Wilderness Advocates are individuals supporting Wilderness, WILDForest, WILDCoasts, WILDRivers and WILDIsland. They do it by increasing awareness and promoting the areas with passion. Wilderness Advocates are also dedicated to the education of the next generation of Europeans on Wilderness.
The Importance of Wilderness Advocates to the European Wilderness Movement was recognised by European Wilderness Society already several years ago and finally the first Wilderness Advocates in Ukraine were awarded by Diploma last week at the International conference hold in Rachiv, Ukraine. This was an event organised due to the 10th anniversary since the inscription of the UNESCO World Heritage Property «Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany, and also to award European Wilderness Society Platinum Certificate to Uholka-Shyrokyy Luh Wilderness!
The group of committed Wilderness Advocates from the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve and also from Zacharovanyy Kray National Nature Park, Synevyr National Nature Park and Carpathian National Nature Park were awarded by this Wilderness Advocates Diploma.
