‘Our country is unique. Our environment, our biodiversity is something that we can be really proud of. We do not have a right not to celebrate such an important day, especially when we have such good foreign partner companies. Environment is in fashion and it should be strengthened’, declared the Environment Minister Mr. Goga Khachidze.

PAN Parks welcomes the declaration of the International Year of Biodiversity as we also look to the opportunities triggered by natural succession and ecosystem dynamics to protect global biodiversity. In PAN Parks Wilderness areas, the priority is protecting ecosystem dynamics and supporting the protection of biodiversity - ecosystem dynamics link.


Many examples of this could be provided so a page on our website will be devoted to providing a collection of case studies, interviews, articles on the relation of wilderness and biodiversity and the PAN Parks efforts to protect biodiversity through wilderness protection.
