Kivertsy National Nature Park “Tsumanska Pushcha” was created to preserve valuable natural and historical and cultural complexes. The territory of the park is characterized by a variety of types of landscapes and areas, representatives of flora and fauna.
The park was created on the basis of wetlands and forests of Kivertsy district, on the extreme border of Ukrainian Polissya, which is located between the rivers Styr and Horyn. This is an original natural complex, which was formed on richer soils than in the north of Polissya.
Today they are virgin oak and pine-oak forests, which form a kind of complex with swamps of different types and areas of meadows along watercourses, chernovilshnyaks, floodplains. This natural complex preserves an extremely rich biodiversity, there are rare species of plants and animals, and the swamps impress with their unique flora and fauna. For a long time, these natural complexes and their biodiversity remained insufficiently studied.
