The territory of Ukraine, except for some small areas within the Ukrainian Carpathians, Central and Eastern Podolia, Poltava characterized as polluted and very polluted, and 15% of the country is generally extremely polluted regions with the risk to human health. These include the thirty-kilometer zone of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the southern Dnieper, Donbass region.
Also ,the protection of endangered species entered in the Red Book of Ukraine and international «red» lists is realized through a limitation of use, more severe reactions to illegal catching, establishing protected natural areas and objects in places of great importance for the animals.
Many species of plants and animals on our planet are at risk, and in most cases they are threatened by human beings. The most common cause of extinction is loss of habitat — the places where wild animals and plants live are taken over or altered by people. Every ten minutes one kind of animal, plant or insect dies out forever. If nothing is done about it, one million species that are alive today may soon become extinct. We need to raise the level of environmental education of citizens of Ukraine ,to introduce large material fines for damage to the environment, both for industry and for ordinary people. Fortunately, it's not too late to solve these problems.
