At national level Szatmár-Bereg counts as a rich region in natural and cultural values, the Szatmár-Bereg Protection Area is responsible for protecting this region. The area disposes of such several important natural values which have not been included in the Protection Area because of its’ coverage; however they represent integral parts of the landscape and define it. Our organization has already conducted in 71 settlements a survey of these small dimensioned, but extremely important, so-called unique landscape values. Unfortunately our former work was ineffective because the local governments have not used the received professional materials and no areas, nor objects of local (governmental) protection were created. Since this survey 4 years have passed and meanwhile some of these unique landscape values have disappeared because of the lack of their protection. During our present work we shall conduct again the survey, we shall monitor the occurred changes and submit to the local governments proposals for declaration of protected areas and management plans for the remained values, avoiding this way the former inefficiency of our work. We intend to raise the awareness of the local population with boards and local events. We aim to motivate the population through prizes offered for their participation to our programs. Our main target group is the local population and the management of the local governments. We wish to employ one permanent employee and two temporary colleagues.
