This website was active during the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of independence of the Republic of Slovenia (from the 25th anniversary of the plebiscite on independence on 23 December 2015 until the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia on 23 December 2016). The site has not been updated since, but the content is still available for browsing.

In terms of biodiversity, the European Commission has ranked Slovenia's forests 1st among the European Union Member States. As 70% of the forests are part of Natura 2000 sites, they represent the backbone of the European environment protection network in Slovenia.
