Establishment of protected areas is among the main conservation activities. Economic development harms the natural environment directly or indirectly, and opportunities towards its protection are restricted in many ways. To choose the areas to be protected it is necessary to recognize those possessing most valuable and vulnerable components of biosphere.

oblast, most were founded

members of our organization

etc.). Now such activity is
going on – we specify species,
ecosystems and particular sites
