Protection & Preservation of the

Natural Environment in Albania

www.PPNEA.org

​Protection and Preservation of the Natural Environment in Albania (PPNEA) is a non-governmental environmental organisation that operates throughout Albania. Founded in 1991, PPNEA was the country's first environmental organisation. It emerged in a period of turmoil and socio-economic change in the country and the wider region - a time where environmental issues were looked down upon and given marginal priority in governing and policy issues.

 

PPNEA's work is mostly within Albania, but it is expanding all the time into neighbouring countries due to long-lasting transboundary collaboration with the main environmental organisations in Greece, North Macedonia, Kosovo and Montenegro.

Communities

A key component of conservation is to build structures for local people to join in any project. PPNEA aims to achieve sustainable environmental development through empowering local communities in a way that, amongst many other things, assures the minimisation of human-nature conflicts.

PROJECTS

Balkan Lynx Recovery Project

This is one of Europe's unsung conservation victories; a multi-country success story for the critically endangered Balkan lynx, of which only 30-40 individuals exist. Since 2005, together with partners in North Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Germany and Norway, PPNEA has been studying the biology of this rare cat and working with governments and locals to protect it.

The Green Belt

This initiative has the vision to create a backbone of ecological networks along the former Iron Curtain.

Korab-Koritnik-Sharr transboundary cooperation project 

Together with partners from North Macedonia and Kosovo, PPNEA are coordinating actions for the transboundary conservation and sustainable development of this biodiversity-rich mountain area.

Mediterranean Monk Seal

New project

Balkan Wetlands

Dalmatian pelican conservation and wetland habitat management in the Mediterranean Basin.

Adriatic Flyway

Working mostly along the coastal wetlands of Albania to protect the millions of birds that migrate along the route.

Prespa Lakes

Cooperation with PPNEA, SPP (Greece) and MES (North Macedonia) is essential for the integrated management of these ancient lakes.
