The protected nature reserves throughout Greece but also information about the mountain shelters, information centres, museums, monuments and archeological sites, ski resorts, wetlands, mountains and thermal baths can be found on the new website www.visitgreeknature.gr that seeks to promote Greece’s protected areas as tourist destinations.
The website was created by the Goulandris Museum of Natural History and the Hellenic Center for Habitats – Wetlands, with funding from the Green Fund, while a relevant presentation was made by the representative of the museum, Lena Hatziiordanou, during an online conference on the Internet and new methods of showcasing and promoting protected areas.
The website presents all the protected areas of mainland and island Greece, giving equal weight to both the natural and cultural wealth of the country, while it aims to highlight their importance and value for recreation. It is aimed at a broad audience that includes agencies, institutions and scientists as well as non-specialist nature lovers, while it is user friendly.
