Nature conservation and protected areas

We work to conserve biodiversity because we believe that experiences in nature are essential for emotional and spiritual peoples' development. We think about nature surrounding us as a united ecosystem where each element is important for its' functionality.  Our aim is to preserve cultural and natural heritage by promoting sustainable development of protected areas, through capacity building of administrators and community involvement. So, we invite to conserve and explore unique nature by traveling slowly. In addition, we organise seminars for protected areas specialists.
