The Republican Wild Life Fund announced the contest “Forrest Knight”, aimed at encouragement of those people, who protect wild animals from extermination, bravely struggling with poaching.
“Poaching makes irreparable damage to fauna. Using cars and snowmobiles poachers exterminate rare species of animals and birds any time. Our forests grow scarce every year” – the chairman of the fund, popular Ufa writer Kamil Ziganshin says – “But fortunately there are people, who try and save what still can be saved. This activity demands real bravery and fearlessness and we established this contest for encouraging such forest knights”.
