The rough pastures in the area of the present Nature Park Lonjsko Polje have since ever been feeding place for White Stork, Spoonbill and Lesser Spotted Eagle. To keep the pasture landscape open, Euronatur and SAVE Foundation have jointly and successfully been active for the conservation of the well-adapted Turopolje pigs since 1993.

In 2004, 20 heads of Podolac cattle were introduced to the area (Slavonian-Syrmian Grey Cattle). Those "dangerous" looking animals are an unique tourist attraction and prevent at the same time photographers and visitors from disturbing heron nests on the pastures at close range. The Croatian government pays conservation subsidies for endangered animals that also contribute to the parks’ management. The Nature Park profits thus from biotope management, offers an attraction for tourists and also contributes to the conservation of livestock diversity with nucleus breeding herds.
