HoryZonty - György Gadó
On one hand commercial tourism can be a threat to the nature but on the other hand also the directors of the national park directorates know that their duty is to present nature values to the public.
On Friday afternoon we will learn more also about opportunities for ecotourism in Hungary.
GyörgyGadó, one of our Friday guests is a forest engineer and an active nature conservationist. In addition to many other activities he has been making environmental films as well. He will start his presentation Nature without Borders with a short footage from one of his films, ’Wolves on the Edge’, shot shortly before Slovakia and Hungary entered the European Union in 2004.
The film captures rare wolves moving freely in their natural territory regardless the artificial, man-created state borders, which in the time of making the movie really existed.
Nowadays, observation of these wild animals is much simpler and researches can follow the traces without getting arrested. It is our common responsibility to protect nature values of the territory where our countries meet.
