within the frame of a sustainable development strategy where

nature conservation, the prudent use of natural resources, local

culture and the economy complement each other.


Main elements of this strategy are:

  • The preservation of species and habitats in combination with the sustainable use of natural resources.
  • Environmental education and public awareness at all levels.

  • The promotion of models of alternative sources of income in ecologically important areas, compatible with the conservation of nature.

  • The co-operation and active involvement of the local population, the administrative authorities and the business sector.

  • Generally, the contribution in any way to the efforts for a balanced, integrated and sustainable development.

Our philosophy is best reflected in our slogan:

Destroying the environment is easy.

Protecting it is difficult and expensive

– but worth the effort.

Its rehabilitation tomorrow might be impossible.
