Péter Conservation Club started working as a self-motivated group
in 1978. At the beginning we organised nature conservation study groups
and camps in summer for pupils. By our environmental education we got
in touch with other educational institutes working for the same goals,
with the Természet Búvár Periodical, with higher
educational institutes and domestic non-governmental organisations. Programs
for environmental education and nature conservation were worked out together
with organisations and research institutes. After that we grounded our
association and chose Beretzk Péter, the researcher of the Lake
Fehértó in Szeged, as the name of our organisation. Here
in the South part of the Great Hungarian Plain, a lot of voluntary environmentalist
help the work of our association.
activity of our NGO-members spreads over:
the information on inhabitants about environmental and nature conservation,
professional trainings, organizing fieldwork activities, nature-conserving
researches, representing and protecting these goals in the domestic and
international issues, searching the opportunities of ecoturism, developments,
organising forums for the people. Beside that we help the formation, realisation
of the environmental programs of the local government, and the finishing
of settlemet development plans.
• All the members know that the biosphere is sensitive and the resources
are limited. Many people cooperate in the region to protect the biosphere,
to sruggle for the nature conservation and environmental issues.
• We search, teach, develop, research and offer the ways of sustainable
• In our programs the members cooperate with the members of the
govermental and economical sectors and the inhabitants.
• The environmental education has an important role between our
challenges beside the research of local natural values. We try to help
to reach the environmental protection of the values and we establish educational
paths along them.
• We call the people’s attention to the environmental problems
by researches, publications, communal activities, professional programs
and aimed lobbying activities
• The issues of our campaigns are in connection with reducing the
consequences of climatic changes by conscious actions, the importance
of preserving the biodiversity and the opportunities for them.
• We have international connections in these issues and we have
collective projects with associations (civil and governmental) from France,
By the research
and determinization of the natural values in Röszke we connected
to the regional ecoturistic network.
The surveys managed
to reveal the natural and man-made values in Röszke and we worked
out our turistical program trying to show all of them. We have 5 paths
altogether, establishing the professional ecoturistical programs. Its
importance is much more significant, because these paths are connected
with other natural paths in Mórahalom, Ásotthalom, Domaszék,
Zákányszék and Üllés (the near settlements).
We organise programs along these paths:
fieldwork we try to force the self-supporting „knowledge-collecting”
by professional informative books, work-sheets, and the informative tables
on the field. All of our publications can be found and bought, and if
somebody want to read more about these topics, a free library is available.

programs we make:

- designating the ways connecting the stations
- popularise the ecoturistical netwoks by books and on the internet
- making informative tables at the stations
- sustainable management of the protected areas.
