WWF started the project Dinaric Arc Parks in early 2012, with the aim to create an association of nature and national parks in the territory of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo*, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. This three-year project is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the MAVA Foundation.
„Efficient and long-term cooperation in the Western Balkans is indeed possible,” said Nina Jensen, the CEO of the WWF Norway on the press conference representing results of the project "Strengthening the capacity of public and civil sector in Serbia and Montenegro for the application of EU legislation on nature protection" in Montenegro in May 2012. „Montenegro and Western Balkans have a marvelous biodiversity that WWF wants to preserve for future generations. People need and can live in harmony with nature, and the Western Balkans should serve as an example to others. We are happy that we were involved in the conservation of biodiversity, and that we assisted in raising the funds for this project,” she concluded announcing that completion of that project does not mean that Norway will stop investing in Montenegro. "Actually WWF already started a new project earlier this year – Dinaric Arc Parks, through which a network of more than 80 parks from the Dinaric Arc will be formed."
