Since 2006, a new international organisation – the Carpathian Network of Protected Areas (CNPA) – has been working to conserve national resources in the Carpathians. The CNPA will coordinate joint projects designed to: improve cooperation between the seven Carpathian countries; facilitate exchanges between the Carpathian protected areas; raise awareness of the fragile ecosystems in the massif, and work to realise practical measures, such as the creation of an ecological network to ensure the survival of endangered species. There is a strong emphasis on cooperation with our Alpine neighbours.
