Nature protection and sustainable tourism

Protection and conservation of nature define the number of activities towards maintaining the integrity and balance of ecosystems and biodiversity. This concept seeks to prevent or correct harmful changes in nature arising as a result of human activity. Protected areas are one of the most efficient nature protection tools but one of the most visited tourist destinations in Croatia and beyond. To ensure undisturbed natural processes in protected areas, but also to contribute to the sustainable development of local communities that relate to them, the visitation should be focused on sustainable tourism as the only permissible form.
