Jeeping is a popular pastime among tourists who want to get an adrenaline rush and visit the mountains.

However, this is not only fun, but also a very harmful pastime that harms flora and fauna and destroys nature. During the spring and summer season, when the "silent season" reigns in the forest, jeeps make noise, scaring away breeding or hunting animals. In addition, rare species of plants and animals listed in the Red Data Book of Ukraine die under the wheels of jeeps.

Many tourists and local residents of mountain villages complain about jeeps, because they destroy hiking forest roads, break up puddles in the middle of national parks and cause soil erosion. In addition, any transport harms school ecology by emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. We invite you to sign the petition on jeep licensing in the Carpathians. This will help regulate the issue of jeeping and establish separate rules for this sport.
