The Management Body’s purpose is to protect the habitats in the protected region and specifically the wetlands, dunes and pine forest (Pinus pinea) at Strofylia – the most extensive pine forest in Greece. In addition to protection, the Authority’s aim is to provide information and awareness about the area’s ecological significance, to promote sensitivity amongst the citizens and to also implement environmental training, touring and ecotourism programs.

The Management Body’s priorities include recording and monitoring the types of habitats and the species of flora and fauna in the protected area, managing the forest to preserve and assist pine trees (Pinus pinea), continually monitoring the water quality in the lagoons, protecting dunes in the coastal zone and finally informing residents and visitors about the area’s values in order to raise their awareness about the dangers the region is facing.
