Reservation Liburna was established in 1995. with aim to protect and preserve indigenous breeds of donkeys, and to this day it evolved and besides protection it posseses cultural, etnographical, educational and touristic qualities. Reservation contents are adjusted to raise and educate youth to preserve and protect natural ans cultural heritage (care for indigenous breeds od domestic animals and rural traditional customs enables children to realise importance of biological and landscape diversities). We operate through organised tours of children raging from kindergarden to school age with organisation of educational workshops - school in nature. Children participate in workshops of their own choice, with special attention paid to children with disabilities. In the year 2003. over 6.000 children of all ages visited us and participated on our project "We create foundations for future generations".
