Conservation Projects

The concerted opinion of all botanists who had seen this peatland is that it would have deserved protection for a long while, like other peatbogs already protected from Harghita Mountains (Lacul Dracului, Mohos, Luci). That's why our team initiated its protection, having the material support of Rufford Maurice Laing Foundation . See our project (Biodiversity inventory, sustainable conservation and establishment of a new nature reserve in Harghita Mountains (Eastern Romanian Carpathians, Harghita county), Romania) on their website .
