National nature protection

The most important way of protecting nature is by protecting natural areas. Protecting natural areas also means protecting animal and plant species, the landscape and our opportunities for enjoying nature.

The most important means of protecting nature are area and species protection, nature management, nature restoration, planning, surveillance, conservation orders, protection lines, agreements, subsidies and information campaigns. Nature protection must be on the basis of the EU directives and international agreements which Denmark is bound to follow.
