We gained access to the internal database of the Agency for Nature Conservation and Landscape Protection of the Czech Republic. What does it mean for us? There is a lot of detailed information about protected areas in Czech Republic in the database, for example the date of last patrol or the assessment of nature reserve. What is more, we can also insert comments on management or appraise present state of given protected area.
