Today, 16-го July, in the Nikolaev regional library for youth the presentation of an exhibition of photoworks of the known Nikolaev ecologist, the director of the Black Sea network of public organizations Oleg Derkacha took place.
At all presented works - surprising landscapes and unique representatives of flora and the faunae living in the territory of a wonder of our area - the regional landscape park "Granitno — Steppe Pobuzhye" which has located on coast and islands of the river the Southern Bug from Pervomaisk to Voznesensk. From here and the exhibition name - "Bugsky Gard - a pearl of Nikolayevshchina".
This action is organized within the nation-wide program "Seven Natural Miracles of Ukraine". RLP "Granitno — Steppe Pobuzhye" was entered by one of the most surprising corners of our country first in the list. Such reserves as "Askaniya - Is new" (The Kherson Region), the lake Sinevir (Zakarpatye), the Marble cave, the Karadagsky natural reserve, Balaklava Bay with capes Aja and Fiolent (ARE the Crimea), Bukovinsky falls (The Chernovitsky Region), etc.compete with it
All emphases on action were placed by Oleg Derkach:
- The main thing is not a today's exhibition, and that action which takes place under aegis of "Seven miracles of Ukraine". Our purpose - to draw attention to all Nikolaev (and not only) the public to idea of preservation of unique corners of our nature one of which is Bugsky Gard - "Granitno - steppe Pobuzhye".
The deputy of regional council Yaroslav Indikov supported the ecologist:
- Thanks to such actions we have opportunity to learn about that natural wealth which we have, to realize its value and uniqueness. When I was told about these primary breeds, I presented that these stones saw not only mammoths - them saw dinosaurs. They saw how the first fish got out of water and turned into an overland being.
The action purpose, according to the Nikolaev writer Vera Marushchak, is promoting of the unique natural world of Nikolayevshchina and drawing attention of all world community to object which has prospect to become a peculiar business card of our state.And the purpose all of us - to take in it active part.
Organizers of action urge all not indifferent citizens to take part in vote which is taken on a site http://www.7chudes.in.ua/. On this occasion the Nikolaev charity foundation "Indigo" even let out two thousand advertizing leaflets with an appeal to give vote for a reserved pearl of our area - "Granitno - steppe Pobuzhye".
However the miracle of Nikolayevshchina can soon disappear. According to ecologists, the reserve is threatened by destruction owing to the gradual flooding of its territories provoked by activity of Tashlyksky pumped storage power plant.
