Exodus and PAN Parks


Published on

Exodus and PAN Parks started their partnership in 2006. Over the 6 years of working together Exodus raised 30 000 Eur through its Finnish wilderness week in Oulanka National Park (thank also for Basecamp Oulanka) for wilderness protection. In order to commemorate this achievements and acknowledge Exodus I presented our The Million Project approach to Exodus employees in London on 29 September 2011. Exodus is going to support The Million Project from 2012.

  • Exodus and PAN parks has been cooperating for 5 years. Since 2006 Exodus has contributed significantly to the protection of Europe’s wilderness. I am here to thank for Exodus for its financial contribution to the protection of Europe’s wilderness, and introduce our foundation and our cooperation in details. PAN Parks and Exodus has signed a new agreement this year, but remains a supporter, hopefully in long run.

  • Wilderness does exist on our continent ... In amazing old growth forests both in northern countries...
  • and in Mediterrnean areas
  • With incredible underwater wilderness and flora on islands
  • Fabulous mountains also host wild areas ...
  • W ilderness is there in the world of meandering rivers...
  • freshwater ecosystems
  • We have to work with already protected improve management effectiveness, involve local communities in the management (visitor management), increase the public support (awareness raising through making visitation possible -> tourism model) and create new funding opportunities for protection (in the current economic decline there are budget cuts and the gap might be filled through tourism related incomes)
