PAN Parks is the leading European wilderness protection organisation...really the only one which works for the protection of wilderness in Europe (on a European scale) for future generations!

PAN Parks creates a network of European wilderness areas where natural systems of animals and plants are safe to thrive, where people appreciate the pleasures offered by wilderness with the respect it deserves. These areas offer real wilderness with outstanding nature and high quality tourism facilities, well balances with wilderness protection and sustainable local development.
