We invite you to visit the Škocjan Caves during the winter time, when the air in the cave is even cleaner and more fresh, and a pleasant temperature of 12°C. During this period, the water in the River Reka normally tends to be higher, so the visitor may hear its mighty roar in the canyon from afar.
We inform you with great pleasure that Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, appointed our colleague and Head of Research and Development Department, mag. Vanja Debevec, a member of the International Advisory Committee for Biosphere Reserves of UNESCO MAB Program for her second mandate in a row.
At the end of December 2012 the Unesco headquarters approved the project Monitoring of Unesco World Heritage Sites that was submitted by the Park Škocjan Caves Public Agency in collaboration with partners from Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Hungary and Romania. In July 2013 we published the introductory web page that you can visit here. On it you can find lots of interesting information for Unesco sites. The project will be finished this month.
The study has been made in the framework of the project Protected Areas for a Living Planet – Dinaric Arc Eco-region Project. The aim of developing and conducting the study on ecosystem services evaluation in the Škocjan Caves Regional Park was to increase the capacity of the protected area management.
