ABOUT THE INSTITUTE

HISTORY

The IRSNC was founded in 1999, when the Law on nature protection was proclaimed. The beginning of its formal functioning dates back to January 2002, when uniting separate nature conservation units, which had previously worked as Regional Institutes for the Conservation of Natural and Cultural Heritage, and merging them into a uniform organisation. Thus seven regional units were formed, joined by the central unit in Ljubljana as their major link and coordinator.
