These include protected areas, governmental departments, NGO's and businesses in 36 countries, who themselves manage the green jewels of Europe's land, sea, mountains, forests, rivers and cultural heritage. Nature knows no boundaries and we therefore facilitate international co-operation in all aspects of protected area management to further and improve and conserve our shared natural inheritance.

Congratulations to the 2014 European Day of Parks winner, Anne-Marie Austad from Malta, representing Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park!


Anne-Marie Austad has submitted a stunningly beautiful artwork created for a special event - "An Evening with Shearwaters" organized in conjunction with FALKO youths and researchers from the EU Life+ Malta Seabird Project celebrating the European Day of Parks.  

From more than 40 submissions for this year's contest on Facebook, her fabulous painting collected more than 100 “likes” and expressed the young author’s love and passion for birds and nature. We would like to thank Anne-Marie for sharing with us her impressive talent and dedication to promote and conserve Malta’s largest protected natural landscape, the Majjistral Nature and History Park. We are also very happy that Anne-Marie will be joining us this year at our conference in Ireland. 



All the amazing artworks and captures of the great activities organized  this year for the European day of Parks demonstrate that this in not just a day in May, it’s a unique opportunity to spread the word, celebrate and appreciate our European Protected Areas!
