State of the Parks in Finland is the first comprehensive report on protected areas, nature and wilderness reserves, the most valuable part of Finnish nature. National parks have been established in Finland since the 1930’s and the protected area network has been constructed since the 1970’s. The protected area system is today an important part of the nature conservation networks of the Boreal region, the Baltic Sea and the European Union.
The Natural Heritage Services unit of the state enterprise Metsähallitus manages a major part of the established protected areas and those reserved for conservation on State land.
This report presents the State of protected areas in Finland in 2005 by
The report gives a comprehensive overview of the present state and the level of knowledge on the protected area network in Finland. A review of the state and level of biodiversity conservation in each of the major ecosystems helps to understand why protected areas are essential and in need of good management. The State of the Parks report also pinpoints the ecological, cultural, social and economical benefits offered by national parks and other protected areas.
State of the Parks reporting carries out objectives of the CBD work programmes. Frameworks used for the reporting are the Management Effectiveness Evaluation methodology designed by the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the model for environmental monitoring developed by the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the concept of Adaptive Management in management and use of natural resources.
State of the Parks reporting on Finnish protected areas will be repeated in 2010.
