Tasks and purposes
A priority task in the field of environmental protection refers to the preservation of the natural bio-cenotic specificity of lakes, in particular lobelia lakes, peat-bogs and pine forests.
The purpose of inanimate nature protection refers to:
- preserving natural processes and geological, geomorphologic, hydrological and soil structures;
- hydrological system restoration;
- preventing against trophia development as well as soil and water (surface and ground waters) acidification;
- protection of soil against erosion and protection of peat deposits against degradation in case of the occurrence of threats.
The purpose of the Park eco-systems protection refers to:
- undertaking measures to preserve natural diversity of habitats and, to the greatest possible degree, their mosaic character in the Park;
- ensuring proper soil, water, light and thermal conditions, limiting atrophic pressure impacts;
- supporting spontaneous succession processes,
in forest ecosystems:
- ensuring natural and permanent growth for forest associations;
- maintaining natural biological diversity and ecological processes in forest associations;
- supporting natural restoration of species composition, age and space structure of tree stands in autogenic forest phytocenoses;
- limiting unfavorable phenomena and processes in secondary forest associations;
- restoring tree stands destroyed by damage-making factors.
in non-forest land ecosystems:
- maintaining sustainability of natural phytocenoses ;
- maintaining semi-natural meadow eco-systems as the symptom of biological biodiversity of the nature of the Park;
- restoring natural phytocenoses, with consideration to the need of protecting natural habitats, mushroom species, plants and animals as well as their habitats.
in water ecosystems:
- ensuring conditions enabling the operation of water eco-systems (lakes and watercourses) as well as water and swamp eco-systems (peat-bogs, swamps, springfens, etc.) taking into consideration the tendency of their development;
- stimulating the number increase in case of rare populations, endangered and vulnerable plant and animal species;
- restoring species diversity of ichthyofauna proper for a given ecosystem.
The purpose of protecting species of fungi and plants as well as their habitats refers to:
- maintaining species and habitat diversity;
- maintaining and restoring habitats of endangered species;
- preventing against foreign species expansion;
- restoring lost floristic and phytocenotic assets.
The purpose of protecting animal species and their habitats refers to:
- ensuring the continuity of indigenous animal species existence;
- ensuring conditions enabling increasing numbers of rare and endangered species;
- restoring animal species, which disappeared from the area of the Park as a result of human activities;
- restoring proper age and sex structure in populations of big mammals as well as maintaining the number of those animals, in a manner not jeopardizing the operation of biocenoses.
The purpose of protecting landscapes refers to:
- preserving, maintaining or restoring scenic and esthetic values of the landscape;
- preserving the existing mosaic of meadows, pastures, forests, woodlots and shrubs;
- forming and preserving local cultural landscape.
The purpose of protecting cultural values refers to:
- restoring, preserving and maintaining as well as popularizing cultural values of the Park;
- preserving cultural identity of the area of the Park.
