3. Project LIFE - Nature '99 Actions for the protection of the calcareous fens of lake :
  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.

  The Convention on Wetlands is an intergovernmental treaty adopted on 2 February 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar, on the southern shore of the Caspian Sea. Thus, though nowadays the name of the Convention is usually written "Convention on Wetlands (Ramsar, Iran, 1971)", it has come to be known popularly as the "Ramsar Convention". Ramsar is the first of the modern global intergovernmental treaties on conservation and wise use of natural resources, but, compared with more recent ones, its provisions are relatively straightforward and general. Over the years, the Conference of the Contracting Parties (the main decision-making body of the Convention, composed of delegates from all the Member States) has further developed and interpreted the basic tenets of the treaty text and succeeded in keeping the work of the Convention abreast of changing world perceptions, priorities, and trends in environmental thinking.
