  • 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.
