UNESCO "Pro Natura" - Association for Action in Protected Areas is member of IUCN The World Conservation Union
Maintenance and preservation of different natural habitats, and also peoples education in this sense in order to achieve in Romania the principles and programs of UNESCO in the field of nature conservation.
From the begining the members of Pro Natura have had as aim the nature conservation, more exactly to develop concrete actions in some Protected Areas. We focused since 1992 on Retezat National Park and since 1993 on Cerna Valey too, considering them the most valuable montane zones from Romania, an european interest natural area. Pro Natura started in 1992 the programme Protection and Environmental Education in Retezat National Park and Cerna Valey Area which has been developed every year since then. The members of our association embraced the idea of only one activity, but vast in scope. In 1998 UNESCO Pro Natura won the Henry Ford European Conservation Award with this programme.
