At this symposium researchers, protected areas managers, as well as individuals from government, business, non-governmental organizations and the general public, who are interested in protected areas, may present and discuss topics which are highly significant for protected areas and are currently taken up by research. The manifold aspects of the interrelation between protection aims, protected area management and the impacts on nature, society and the regional economy in times of transition form the general thematic base of this international conference, held every four years since 1996.

Wildlife and landscape centre for the Pfyn-Finges Regional Natural Park
The Pfyn-Finges Regional Natural Park with its unique natural and cultural landscape pursues two main objectives: on the one hand the intention to offer quality, that is, ensure an area with great environmental quality, and on the other hand the need to protect this area in the long term, and while doing this retain and promote in a sustainable way economic activities especially in the fields of agriculture, forestry and tourism. To achieve this, the Pfyn-Finges Regional Park tries as part of DYNALP to maintain and organise the landscape in the best possible way, and to care for natural areas, while at the same time promoting the economic development of the wider Pfynwald region. One main element of the Regional Park is the "Wildlife and Landscape Centre" in the old Maltese Order coaching inn. In order to apply as many synergies as possible, it is associated with a Documentation Centre and the Administration of the Pfyn-Finges Regional Natural Park. A medium-term objective is to offer rooms for associations, organisations, schools, research, in order to set up a competence centre for the needs of nature and the landscape.
