„Un concept relativ nou îşi face tot mai mult simţită prezenţa atunci când vorbim despre ariile protejate: valoarea economică a acestora. Pentru mine, ca biolog, este o provocare să particip, alături de specialişti în economie la evaluarea ariilor cuprinse în acest proiect. Important este ca, la finalul discuţiilor, să avem o abordare care va asigura o dezvoltare durabilă a acestora.” Marton Venczel, expert biodiversitate.

For me as a biologist, it is a challenge to participate, along with economists to assess the areas included in the project. Importantly, the end of the talks to have an approach that will ensure their sustainable development.” Venczel Marton, biodiversity expert.
