Juraj Lukáč

In 1993, Juraj founded the activist group and NGO VLK. For 25 years, he has been fighting for nature protection and raising awareness about the issue of preservation of Europe’s natural forests. He says he is not an activist but just an ordinary citizen who got annoyed by what’s happening in our forests.

Born in Bratislava, he studied cybernetics and worked in robotics industry or Škoda Mladá Boleslav. He stands behind the idea of evolutionary forests in Slovakia where all living creatures will live in harmony and undisturbed by humans. His organisation VLK owns the first private natural reserve Vlčia in Čergov and Rysia in Strážovske vrchy, they are also renting out Suchá dolina in High Tatras. Juraj lives in the small village Osadné close to the Polish - Slovak border and just a stone’s throw away from the natural reservation Udava.
