Nature conservation

Nature and landscape in the Waldeck-Frankenberg district draw on a wealth of resources. The diverse landscape makes the region a rich natural area. The preservation of this special diversity is important for humans and animals. The Environmental and Climate Protection Service ensures compliance with nature conservation laws. It is involved in approval procedures and issues statements so that nature conservation concerns are taken into account in construction projects or land consolidation procedures, for example. It coordinates landscape management measures, implements species protection projects and contributes its expertise to land management. It monitors natural phenomena that are particularly worthy of protection. The team of the specialist service also advises the towns and municipalities of the district in their urban land use planning and is available to the public as an expert contact and appropriate advice on species conservation issues.
