The Piran Regional Unit covers the southwestern part of Slovenia, i.e. the littoral councils of Izola, Koper and Piran, which enclose the Slovene sea with its coast, the littoral plains with salt-pans, Šavrinsko hills, the Dragonja river catchment and Kraški rob. Excluding the sea, the Piran Unit thus controls 385 km² or 2% of the national territory. Eight areas have been formally protected, including the Škocjan Inlet Nature Reserve and Sečovlje Salina Nature Park, which has been inscribed on the List of wetlands of international concern of the Ramsar Convention.
The Piran Unit is the principal of the activities that have been made obligatory for Slovenia by the Convention for the Protection of the Mediterranean Sea Against Pollution and the Convention's Protocol concerning Mediterranean specially protected areas and biodiversity.
