The National Park
Ensures that we and every living thing in it can enjoy the natural beauty of hills, the mountains, the streams, the rivers, the lakes, the grasslands, the trees, the and forests for years to come. It protects the wildlife and their habitats, ensuring that the fish continue to live and come to our lakes, seas, rivers and streams. That birds continue to nestle and live here year after year. That our wild animals are not driven out of their homes. And looks after our cultural heritage including castles, houses and archaeological sites some of which go back 6000 years.
In addition to protecting and enhancing what we have here, the park ensures that people who live and visit here have the opportunities to enjoy the beauty, wildlife, wilderness and culture. That the communities that live within the park have good economic and social well-being.
One of the Parks initiatives to help achieve all of this called CAE. The CAE initiative is set up to fund projects that are related to sustainable development and that encourage social, environmental and economic benefits in the community. The projects have to demonstrate sustainability, community support and involvement of young people, innovation in the area, compliance with the National Parks purposes.
40% of our funding came from the Park’s CAE initiative. Thank you to the Park for making this project possible.
