Wildlife – it impresses us, it entertains us and sometimes it scares us. But all in all, we live with it and we live from it. To continue like this, we need to protect it. In the European Union, protected areas jointly build a network, called the Natura 2000 that is the largest of its kind. This is the network that protects our natural heritage – the species like otters and brown bears and the habitats like sea cliffs and alpine forests – for us and for our future generations.With these contests, we would like to invite you to explore our natural heritage, to get closer to them, to capture them and to tell others they exist and they have a right to be here.
