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.

Among protected areas of Saint-Petersburg and Leningrad oblast, most were founded following the proposals of the members of our organization (George Noskov, Dmitry Kovaliov, etc.). Now such activity is going on we specify species, ecosystems and particular sites requiring conservation.
