Zemaitija National Park

Zemaitija National Park

Žemaitija National Park (ŽNP) was established in 1991 with the aim of preserving, managing and sustainably developing those areas of Žemaitija in north-western Lithuania, that are most valued for their natural and cultural qualities.The majority of the area is covered by hemi-boreal forest (mostly dominated by Picea), and there are also bogs, marshes, several lakes with islands, meadows, and agricultural land. Land-uses are many and varied, including agriculture, forestry, and recreation.
191 species of birds have already been recorded in the Park and it remains an important breeding area for Spotted Crake (Porzana porzana),Corncrake (Crex crex). This is the main breeding site for Goosander (Mergus merganser) (10-18 pairs) in Lithuania and is also important for breeding White stork (Ciconia ciconia) (more than 70 pairs) and Black grouse (Tetrao tetrix).
