Protected areas of Albania

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Network of protected areas of Albania
Network of protected areas of Albania

The protected areas of Albania comprise a number of various current designations across the territory of the country. The national policy for governing and management of the protected areas is implemented by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism through the National Agency of Protected Areas of Albania (AKZM). Currently, there are 799 protected areas[1] including 14 national parks, 1 marine park, 2 nature reserves, 22 managed nature reserves, 5 protected landscapes and 770 other protected areas of various categories.[2][3][4] Further a biosphere reserve, 3 world heritage sites, 4 ramsar sites, 45 important plant areas and 16 important bird areas are located in Albania.[5][6][7][8][9] Meanwhile, the Albanian government has proclaimed the Coastline of Albania and the Tirana Greenbelt as areas of national importance.[10][11]

However protected areas are being threatened by the construction of hydroelectric dams which have prompted several protests from environmentalists and civil society, meanwhile the logging and hunting moratorium has successfully revived the fauna and flora of protected areas.
