Our conservation work


One fifth of Hungary’s territory, approximately 2 million hectares of land, is covered with forests and tree plantations. Half of the forests includes native tree species, such as oak, beech, and glen forests known from the mountain and hill areas or floodplain forests along rivers. The role of forests is appreciated particularly near settlements. At the same time, their biggest, most valuable, connected pieces can be preserved in the national parks.

Freshwater habitat

Possessing diverse habitats and species richness, stagnant water and rivers represent outstanding natural values in Hungary. Not only are they indispensable for the flora and fauna of aquatic environments, but they also provide primary needs for society: e.g. drinking water. Moreover, they ensure drinking water, as well as breeding and feeding ground for terrestrial organisms.

Climate and energy

Today, the average global temperature of the Earth has increased by 1°C since the Industrial Revolution. This change has a huge impact not only on the climate system but on our everyday life. The long periods of drought and heavy rains are becoming more frequent, so water retention during wet periods is becoming more important: we have to retain precipitation excess for using it during arid summer months.Now, we have the chance to change our future. Our objective is to draw attention to the importance of climate change and to the urgent need for protecting our natural treasures.
