Activities

Activities performed in the frame of the project will be related to:

   1. update and reduction of gaps in information about natural resources of the Białowieża National Park (BPN),
   2. development and implementation of an integrated geoinformation system for collecting, analyzing and sharing this information.  

Natural scientists, involved in the project, will assess the conservation status and state of monitoring system in forest and non-forest habitats of the BPN as well as inventory and valorization of water ecosystems.

As a result of these activities a natural resources database for the National Park will be developed – the main component of the whole geoinformation system. It will help to improve effectiveness of the protection tasks performed by the nature protection services.
