Nature reserves

The aim of protection is the maintenance of the forest ecosystem with the habitats of rare plant and animal species.

Areas of protected landscapes

Areas of protected landscapes cover the areas, which are taken under protection, because of their outstanding, diversified landscape. They are very valuable due to touristic matters. They also perform a function of ecological corridors.

Natura 2000 areas

European Ecological Network Natura 2000 is a kind of system of areas connected one with each other by ecological corridors. These areas form together a coherent ecological network, of which basic task is prevention of biodiversity. It happens through protection of the most valuable and the most rare nature elements.

Natural monuments

Natural monuments are single formations of living (animate) and non-living (inanimate) nature or their clumping with their special environmental, scientific, cultural, historic or landscape value and characterizing with individual features distinguishing them among other creatures. The widespread nature monuments are the oldest and the largest trees. In 2012 there were almost 11.000 monuments in Poland, 8.500 were trees.

Ecological sites

Ecological sites are the Romains of ecosystems that deserve protection and are of great importance for maintenance of biological diversity, f. ex. mid-forest water ponds, swamps, mosses and sites of rare plant, animal and mushroom species. Currently there are 9.000 of them on the area of nearly 30.000 ha.
