Protected Nature Areas

The first laws and regulations concerning the use of forests were passed as early as the 16th

century. Baltic coastal dunes were reforested in the 19th century to prevent their expansion inland. The first protected area in Latvia was designated in Kurzeme in 1913 – the Moricsala, an island in the Usma Lake. 0% of the Latvian territory is within a protected nature area. This includes 4 state reserves, 3 national parks, 22 nature parks, 211 nature reserves, 6 protected landscape areas, and 1 biosphere reserve. Read more: http://www.latvia.eu/natural-attractions
