A Place for Nature
The goal of the campaign is to raise public awareness of threatened natural sites and to fundraise resources in order to purchase important endangered sites or landmarks.
Some of the basic types of lands that can be purchased are valuable natural sites threatened with imminent danger (such as forest clearing, wetland drainage, flowering meadow plowing) or sites, which are suitable for restoration (restoration of a stream, establishment of bio–centers and bio–corridors)
Finances to purchase these lands are largely supplied by the public fundraiser.
After being purchased, the lands become a legal property of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation, the campaign warrantee. Lands are further looked after by local Land Trusts.
The campaign has been launched in 2003. So far, 119.6 hectares of land on 27 sites have been purchased.
