To contribute to the maintenance of biodiversity.
Our goals are the following:
- Preservation of biological diversity both in situ and ex situ.
- Promote and perform the research, management and policies on biodiversity in various scales.
- Promotion of public awareness in use and conservation of species.
- Initiation, support and performance of respective species conservation projects.
The actions of foundation “Lutreola” are divided into continuous long-term (several years) programmes and short-term projects (usually one year). The major long-term program is in progress since 1999 with the aim to organize the restoration and protection of European mink in Estonia and promote its conservation elsewhere.
