Funding Priorities

We fund and organise nature conservation and environmental protection measures and projects in the countries bordering the Baltic Sea that

  • improve the ecological stability and/or the regenerative capacity of the marine environment;

  • contribute to the reduction and/or degradation of pollutants or depositions leading to eutrophication;

  • help to secure and/or improve habitats for rare or protected species and support biodiversity;

  • help to secure, expand, or develop marine protected areas;

  • help to secure, expand, or develop terrestrial protected areas in the Baltic Sea’s immediate catchment area;

  • help to compensate negative effects in the Baltic Sea’s natural environment;

  • in keeping with nature conservation requirements, support the maintenance and development of habitats in the Baltic Sea and/or its immediate catchment area.
