The mission:

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.
