Preserving, protecting and regenerating natural habitats
Paros Park, Cyclades Preservation Fund
Local Partner: Environmental and Cultural Park of Paros
Cyclades Preservation Fund has been supporting the implementation of the upscaling of conservation activities at the ‘Paros Park’ (Environmental and Cultural Park of Paros), such as revegetation, erosion mitigation, water retention, and land regeneration practices, led by the local community. A land area degraded by decades, is slowly but steadily – following the rhythm of nature – leading the wat to halting environmental degradation in the region’s fragile ecosystem. Moreover, Paros Park is becoming a sanctuary of touristic interest, and one which raises awareness among visitors about the habitat-loss problem the Cycladic islands face, and the relatively low-cost but effective solutions that can facilitate erosion prevention and regeneration of degraded land.
