and zoological surveyings were done in the Cserhátalja, at the
beginning, but lately the focus is on the western part of the Mátra
and the Eastern-Cserhát. Non-protected but very important habitats
can be found in both places. The surveying of the insect- and vertebrate
fauna has been started and the initial resoults are very encouraging.
Several endangered plant communities, numerous protected plant- and
animal species can be found here. We cooperate with the experts of the
Bükki National Park, so the collected datas are handed over to
them. During the surveying of the natural areas, in 1998 that meant

entomological surveying, where the collected insects could be placed.
Undergraduates of the University of Debrecen, EFE Sopron, DATE Szarvas,
and high school students took part of the surveyings.
supporters of the research programs were the Central Environment Protection
Fund, "h" Fund and the Independent Ecological Center. We have
an eminent partnership with the Életfa Environment protection
Association and the Nimfea Nature conservation Association. A wet-meadow
owned by the Nimfea Nature Conservation Association is looked after
and treated by us.
