The purpose of this event is to highlight the importance and necessity of protecting a place of unique natural, historical and cultural value.

The exhibition shows snapshots and images that were created on a photographic journey: e.g. the protected goat, the White Mountains, biodiversity, life in the gorge, Agia Roumeli and the incomparable landscapes of the National Park. The exhibition was put together by the Organization for the Natural Environment and Climate Change (O.FY.PE.K.A. or NECCA); the photos come from different archives as well as from photographers and collectors.





I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
