Yesterday at the Zepter Hotel in Belgrade, the promotion of the new issue of the Balkan travel magazine was held with the theme National Parks of Serbia. The magazine is dedicated to presenting national parks and the importance of their protection. Eminent guests from the field of environmental protection and tourism spoke at the promotion.
Sara Pavkov, State Secretary of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, stated that the Ministry and the Government of Serbia aim to expand the state’s protected areas to nine percent.
“It is an honor for me to attend the promotion on behalf of the Ministry, which, to the satisfaction of Minister Irene Vujović and my personal satisfaction, mentions the beauties of all five national parks and two future ones. The modern form of park protection began in the mid-19th century, and now that process has evolved significantly. From the 2015 Law on National Parks, they represent integral parts of sustainable development. The Ministry of Environmental Protection, with the support of the Government of Serbia, is intensively working on expanding the areas under state protection, and our goal is to expand those areas to nine percent. Our country can boast exceptional beauty, and our goal is to preserve it. Our descendants will thank us if we save the disappearance of wolves, eagles, or other protected species. We have no right to deprive our descendants of enjoying Sopotnica or Pešter,” concluded Sara Pavkov.
