The largest Network of European Protected Areas

We are the EUROPARC Federation and we represent hundreds of responsible authorities and thousands of Protected Areas in 35 countries. We often say in EUROPARC that nature knows no boundaries and we therefore facilitate international co-operation in all aspects of Protected Area management to improve and conserve our shared natural inheritance. Someone out there has the answer to your question, a solution to your problem, an idea you can use. So connect to the network!

We are really proud that EUROPARC is recognised around the world as a professional network of European Protected Areas providing a forum to share professional experience, collaborate on technical projects and progress common aims.

It’s great working with interesting people who look after special places and we’d be delighted to welcome you to be a part of it! Hopefully you’ll find out more as you navigate through the website, or check us out on facebook, twitter, Instagram and LinkedInWe especially look forward to welcoming you in person at any one of our events or at our annual Conference.
