The Foundation is actively protecting and preserving the large forest areas and purchased 25.400 ha for protection and restoration. Their focus is on the preservation of forested mountains containing high biodiversity.
- preserving the forests and animals in the Carpathian Mountains
- develop the area economically through eco-tourism

- help the communities develop through tourism.
So far, the Foundation replanted 2.9 million trees, eradicated 25 km of tractor tracks, reintroduced the bison in their habitat, and initiated several social programs in communities to develop the field of environmental education. Also, they developed business plans for 17 businesses in eco-tourism.
