Machaon in a nutshell
We are an independent, non-profit and internationally active organization from Slovakia, established in February 2008 by two nature enthusiasts – Jozef Bednar and Svetlana Belova.
Our mission is to support national parks and other protected areas as guardians of nature and traditional culture and as places of inspiration and admiration for humankind.
Over the years, our organization has acquired a lot of experience and special skills in fund-raising, project management, international exchange, organization of study-tours, expeditions and art events.
Our main tool to accomplish our mission is the development and implementation of multi-stakeholders’ nature conservation projects that provide significant added value to local communities.
We focus on 5 priority areas:
Machaon International as any other non-governmental organization needs to find sufficient funding, so that we can continue to fulfill our mission and carry out our projects. If you are interested to make a donation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
