4. Project LIFE - Nature '99 Actions for the protection of the calcareous fens of lake :
Natural Environment - Natural wetlands
 The project LIFE - Nature '99, is working out in Trichonis lake area, as a goal has the protection of the calcareous fens of lake. Immediate objective of the project is the restoration of sites to a favorable conservation state and increase public awareness. Long term objective of the project is to secure the protection of the Calcareous Fens within the network of strategically located sites. The Calcareous fens is a priority habitat type in Annex I of the Directive 92/43/EEC. The Calcareous Fens are very unstable habitats thus requiring special protection. Calcareous Fens with Cladium mariscus and Carex sp are usually found at lowland areas of lakes and lagoons. The geographic distribution of the Calcareous Fens is limited to some small fresh water systems to Greece. Although the areas it covers are small these biotopes are of scientific interest since it represents unstable and vulnerable habitats. The proposed project aims at implementing management actions, which are essential for the restoration and conservation of the habitat Calcareous Fens, within the NATURA 2000 site Trichonis Lake.

GLOBE increases student awareness of their environment from a scientific viewpoint, without advocacy relative to issues. GLOBE improves student understanding of science because it involves them in performing real science - taking measurements, analyzing data, and participating in research in collaboration with scientists. GLOBE students contribute data for scientists to use in their research. GLOBE helps expand the pipeline of potential future scientists and researchers for industry, academia, and government.
