Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park Directorate


In 1995 the National Administration of Forests began the establishment of independent divisions for protected areas management. One of the first administrative units is the Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park Directorate, though it was first part of Forest Protection Station – Varna. The Directorate was declared as an independent division of National Administration of Forests with an ordinance on 15 February 1996.

The Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park Directorate works in many directions: conservation and maintenance of biological and landscape diversity, providing conditions for development of tourist and recreation activities, interpretation of natural and anthropogenic resources for the needs of education.
Under the Directorate management are Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park, Pobiti Kamani Protected Area and Kamchiiski Pyasatsi Protected Area (until 2006).
The main directions in the work of Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park Directorate are Biodiversity and Conservation, Arrangement and Park Regulation, Tourism and Recreation, Public Relations and Educational Programmes.
In the “Boidiversity” direction the Park experts’ efforts are concetrated on monitoring of rare and endangered species. New localities of White Snowdrop, Sea Grape (Ephedra distachya), Caucasian Primrose, Violet Limodore and Pyramidal Orchid are found. Few scientific explorations were made – of the flora and fauna of Kamchiiski Pyasatsi Protected Area, of the animals’ distribution in the Zlatni Pyasaci Nature Park. Each year the Park is included in the bird counting made from BSPB.
The success in “Tourism and Recreation” and “Arrangement and Park Regulation” direction is not less. In the Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park are marked four traditional and three specialized tourist trails.
The kid’s educational trail “Jay’s Home” is a hit among schools and kindergartens in Varna. Children get in unconventional way interesting information about the typical animals in the Park following the trail. A guide from the Directorate leads the groups and organizes entertaining eco games in the “Kid’s corner” on the trail.
The opened in 2005 trail “Nature for All” offers excellent environment for recreation. The rest place combined with sport appliances, as well as the signs with Braille text in front of different tree species gives wonderful opportunities for diversification of the stay in the forest. The trail is designed so that it can be passed by people in wheelchairs.
Exceptionally interesting for the nature lovers is the Dendrological trail, designed at the territory of the Aladzha monastery museum complex. In front of the Park’s characteristic tree and shrub species has short information for the species, and guests can also buy a book called “Guide of trees and shrubs in Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park”.
One of the major activities in “Public Relations and Educational Programs” direction is work on the “Friends of the Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park” Program.
In 1999 the Directorate was chosen by the Bulgarian Movement “Blue Flag”, representative of the International Foundation of Environmental Education, as a coordinator of the Eco-schools Program and Learning about Forests Program for Varna and North-East Region.
