Microreserves
What are microreserves?
 
Microreserves are territories that are designated for the protection of specially rare species and their habitats. In microreserves similarly to specially protected natural territories certain actions that may threaten the rare species or their habitats are restricted or prohibited.
Microreserves are usually smaller than specially protected areas (0,1 – 20,0 ha, for birds up to 500 ha) and the establisment procedure is less complicated and shorter as than that of specially protected areas. Thus they ensure higher operativiness in the protection process.
The designation of microreserves is determined by the Law on the Protection of Species and Habitats, the Law on Forests and other subordinated regulations. The most significant of them are Cabinet Regulations No. 940 (18.12.2012.) Regulations Regarding Establishment, Protection and Management of Microreserves and Cabinet Regulations No. 421 (05.12.2000.) Regulations Regarding the List of Specially Protected Types of Biotopes.
As microreserves are established for the protection of especially rare species, the information regarding the microreserves and the species found in them is stored in the Data Base of Nature Conservation Agency and is available for registered users only.
 Information on species and habitats in microreserves may be spread with a permission from the Nature Conservation Agency only.
