Pogled na Sveto Brdo (c) Šime Sorić Zbog svoje jedinstvene prirodne osnove, izuzetnih geomorfoloških oblika i veličanstvenih šuma, prostor Velike i Male Paklenice je 19.10.1949. g. proglašen nacionalnim parkom. Osnovni razlog proglašenja ovog prostora nacionalnim parkom bila je zaštita najočuvanijeg i najvećeg šumskog kompleksa na području Dalmacije, kojemu je prijetila opasnost od prekomjernog iskorištavanja. Središnja proslava povodom 65. obljetnice Nacionalnog parka Paklenica održana je 17.10. u hotelu Alan u Starigradu - Paklenici, na kojoj je prisustvovalo preko 120 uzvanika. Proslava je obilježena predstavljanjem „Geološkog vodiča kroz NP Paklenicu“ čiji su autori dr.sc. Ivo Velić, prof.dr.sc. Josipa Velić, prof.dr.sc. Igor Vlahović, dr.sc. Marko Cvetković, a uz njih vodič je predstavio i prof.dr.sc. Ivan Dragičević. Vodič je rezultat višegodišnjih terenskih i laboratorijskih istraživanja cijelog tima geologa pod vodstvom dr.sc. Ive Velića, a u njemu je s geološkog stajališt

Nakon što su u februaru ove godine predali nominacije, njihove je strategije pregledao tim verifikatora, koji su ih kasnije i posjetili te pričali s dionicima, upoznali su se s načinom poslovanja parkov

Biogradsko jezero Početkom decembra u Podgorici, na Proširenoj sjednici Naučnog savjeta Nacionalnih parkova Crne Gore, predstavnici relevantnih institucija i organizacija podsjetili su na dosadašnji nivo naučno-istraživačkih projekata, tehnička rješenja za sanaciju, te definisali aktivnosti u vezi sa načinima i mjerama za rješavanje hidroloških problema u slivu Biogradskog jezera i Jezerštice, što je i bila tema skupa. Na početku sjednice, direktor NPCG Zoran Mrdak istakao je da je „strateško opredjeljenje NPCG u posljednjih deset godina bilo podsticanje valorizacije prirodnih i kulturnih vrijednosti prostora crnogorskih parkova na principima održivosti i potreba „novog vremena” u składu sa dobrim praksama razvijenih evropskih parkova. Izgradnjom nove javne infrastrukture, formiranjem novih turističkih proizvoda i promocijom, stvoren je identitet parkova kao prostora koji čine sastavni dio ponude crnogorskog turizma. No, prije svega, ističemo da je kontinuirano praćenje stanja i p

Therefore, in collaboration with the creative agency Leo Burnett, WWF has started the promotional campaign of the parks in the Dinaric Arc region. The aim of this campaign is to remind the local community of nature treasures 'hidden' in their neighborhood and at the same t
