European Nature Conservation Year, International Anniversaries and Events, Republic of Cyprus
Description:More than twenty five years ago, the Council of Europe launched its first nature conservation campaign to make Europeans generally aware of the overriding need to protect their environment. The existing threats to the environment are so serious that nature conservation is needed not just in the protected areas but comprehensibly throughout Europe. For this reason the Council of Europe decided to stipulate 1995 as "European Nature Conservation Year", with an emphasis on conservation outside the protected areas. Nature conservation should cover all areas where people work and live for even in populated areas, wildlife can survive and prosper if respected and not trampled upon. Therefore the campaign's objective was to ensure that the concepts of natural environment and biodiversity were allowed for in every human activity. Cyprus issued its first set of stamps for the European Nature Conservation Year on 3rd August 1970.
