· Environmental conservation is only feasible if natural processes are kept functional.
· The entire territory must be used in ways that guarantee the conservation of natural processes. Protected areas are a part of an environmental mosaic of different uses according to the biodiversity and the vulnerability of the environment.
· Human beings are part of the environment, are not isolated from it, and cannot function apart or separately from natural systems.
· Environmental quality is directly related to economic development and to life quality. The exhaustion of natural resources leads to the exhaustion of survival possibilities for people, whether for the limitation of economic conditions or for the limitation in life quality.
