In 1992 the area of Alonissos - North Sporades was announced as the first National Marine Park of Greece. The area includes extensive islands and sea regions of the Alonissos island complex with particular natural, morphological and geographical characteristics.
The main purpose of the National Marine Park of Alonissos is:
The protection, the maintaintion and management of nature and landscape, as a natural and valuable national inheritance.
The protection of one of the most important and endangered species, the Meditteranean seal or Monachus-Monachus, that unfortunately is at the top on the list with other species, which are threaten with disappearence in Europe and the entire world.
The protection of other rare and threatened species of the flora and fauna of the island.
The development of the area with the right use of natural resources.
The Park is not a closed area. It is an extensive, protectable area of about 2.200km. The philosophy of the Park is the actual protection of the eco-system along with the growth of Alonissos, which is the only inhabitable island of the Park with out any violent physical intervensions.
