NCA is well experienced in providing information and data concerning the nature conservation also through several specialized web-based databases. We published scientific and popular articles, guidelines, brochures, leaflets etc. The data collected, analyzed and provided by NCA will contribute to the establishment of a solid database covering whole Carpathian Region.
