The Nature Park is first of all a scientific, cultural and educational institution; set up to preserve natural conditions and characteristics, and to introduce wide population with the laws of nature. Because of diversity and heterogeneousness of flora and fauna of this area, the adequate protection is required, whose basis must be first of all based on scientific cognitions. The peculiarities of Papuk represent the important part of biological and landscape values in the area of Slavonia. Outstanding relief characteristics spoke of stormy geological history of origination of this area. Variety of geological phenomenon, preserved flora and vegetation, and habitats of the larger number of animal species, represents the treasure that needs to be explored, improved and preserved from the harmful influence of people for new generations of people who will live here. At the seventh European Geopark Network Open Conference, hosted by North West Highlands Geopark in September 2007, the Papuk Geopark became the first Croatian Geopark and 30th member of the European and UNESCO Global Geopark Network. A Geopark is an area with an expressed geological heritage and a strategy for a sustainable economical development, and the promotion of that very development to the benefit of the local community. The Papuk Geopark is a part of the European and Global UNESCO Geoparks Network, whose main goals are protection, education and a sustainable development. Geopark designation will raise awareness of importance of geological conservation and will contribute to promotion of local and regional products along with local crafts, events, festivals, local traditions and accommodation.
