Nature Conservation Cooperation Across the Borders
Co-operation with Finland’s neighbouring countries Russia, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic countries aims at improving the conservation of the boreal climate and natural features. Transboundary national parks play an important part in cooperation.
Co-operation between bordering countries is important for the conservation of species and for developing sustainable nature tourism.
