Meet the Adriatic » Codes of behaviour in marine protected areas

All the species have their roles in nature, particulary in sensitive areas like national parks and nature parks. An animal or a plant you might stumble upon during your strolls, swimming or diving might be the last one of its kind. Therefore it is essential to show responsibile behaviour in nature in order to preserve these pearls of the Mediterranean – while taking into consideration the fact that in the protected areas, besides respecting the regular sea behaviour codex, one should also follow some extra rules:
*Do not pick, disturb or destroy plants.
*Do not destroy or take away any mineral or cave structures.
*Camping outside camping zone boundaries is prohibited.
*Do not light open fire.
*Do not throw litter into nature; it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to dissolve on land and in the sea.
*Do not throw around cigarette butts.
*Do not destroy, damadge or take away items from archaeological sites (on land and at sea), the remaining of different cultures and cultural monuments.
*Do not disturb animals, if you go diving, please behave responsibly. If situation allows. Please berth your vessel instead of anchoring it, make sure you do not anchor on possidonia meadows.
*While diving make sure you do not damadge or disturb marine organisms – leave the sea only with what you took before taking a dive.
It is far more difficult to preserve a certain area than to proclaim it a protected area: proclaiming it is just a first step – but the effective protection comes a result of creating and implementing managment plans.Therefore it is unbelievable that marine protected areas in Croatia have not had these plans so far, altough National Park Mljet was proclaimed marine protected area back in 1960. But this problem has not struck only Croatia, therefore under the guidance of WWF (world wildlife fund) in 2008 project MedPAN South was launched. In the territory of the Republic of Croatia this project has been coordinated by Association for Nature, Enviroment and Sunstainable Development Sunce from Split. The activities of this associations are primarily directed towards supporting public institutions, involved in this project, in managing marine protected areas, enhancement of the existing outline of the managment plans and goals.
