The Körös-Maros National Park was established in 1997 as the seventh national park of Hungary in order to preserve the nature and landscape of the Southern Tiszántúl. The operational area of the National Park is 800 000 hectares. Its area includes all the Dévaványa-Ecsegi steppes as well as the parts of Körös flood-plains. The magnificent landscape is characterized by diversified and unique natural scenery of the uncontrolled countryside. The Csanádi and Békési plateaus that stretch between the rivers Körös and Maros. Owing to the considerable agricultural development, the protection of the still existing natural plant communities, first of all, that of the loess fields is an outstanding challenge of nature protection. On the vast areas of the erstwhile Kis-Sárrét, in the region covered by the meandering branches of river Körös and on the Dévaványai -, Békési and Csanádi plains there are spacious sodic steppes, remnants of wooded grasslands and marshlands as well as meadows and groves of extraordinary value. The protection of those plant and animal species, which live only in this region of Hungary, or the biggest part of their population lives on the area of our National Park, is an outstanding task.
