Metsähallitus

description of organisation

Protecting Finland´s natural treasures, Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland manages all the state-owned protected areas. Also northern wilderness reserves, national hiking areas and the state-owned public waters are managed by us. While doing this, we safeguard biological diversity and the survival of threatened species also in the future. Most of the protected and other special areas are suited also for recreation. We therefore provide our areas with facilities and services for hikers. We are also in charge of sustainable hunting and fishing in state-owned hunting grounds and fishing waters. These tasks carried out by Parks & Wildlife Finland are funded from the national government budgeting.
