Nature conservation is key to all our engagements. This section of the website is currently under development and our engagements and projects will be more extensively presented soon. For now we simply thought it best to get all the Varanger info out there, as we are recieving a lot of emails with requests of info about Varanger. To be continued...
Gullfest was first celebrated in 2012, each year the festival has grown locally and internationally, and we continue to put Varanger on the world map. The main objective of Gullfest is to promote Varanger and Northern Norway as a world class birding destination to all the bird enthusiasts around the world.
Biotope have initiated a series of bird ringing projects in collaboration with a wide range of partners, from our UK bird ringing friends, to local partners and furthermore to nature authoroties and other. More information is in writing process about this section. Stay tuned..
