Employees of our institution and residents of Murter are working together. To the mutual satisfaction and with the enthusiasm I would like for other environments”Said Josip Zanze, director of NP Kornati for Free Dalmatia.Yes, in addition to the protection of the natural resources of the Kornati archipelago, it also envisages a significant improvement of the tourist and catering infrastructure through three visitor centers, more than 200 anchorages. “We cannot stand idly by regarding the large number of olive groves on the Kornati islands, which are no longer cultivated by the elderly population. We will hire an agronomist, who will not only take care of the protection and harvesting of olives, but also initiate the branding of the production of oil, cheese, and even the famous Kornati lamb. Rather, the NP Kornati and Kurnatari will also benefit from the work. As a clear example of the symbiosis of our institution with the people of Murter and especially the remaining, mostly elderly inhabitants of the islandsZanze added.In addition to infrastructural and multimedia solutions that are planned to be introduced in the Kornati National Park, educational content for visitors and the local public will be introduced, as well as the organization of symposia. Additional educational value will be achieved by networking parks near the Kornati National Park, but also by valorizing the natural heritage using new technologies that monitor the condition of olives and potential changes in order to educate nature conservationists / olive owners about their condition.Related news:DRY WALL CONFIRMED AS CULTURALLY GOOD!DRY WALL CANDIDATED FOR UNESCO INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGElast_img
