ADIPA is a non-governmental organisation established in 2010, Zagreb, Croatia, whose members are experts in diverse natural, interdisciplinary and applied sciences. One of our major goals is conservation of Croatian natural diversity through research, education and promotion. Our activities are focused on cooperation with different international, national, regional and local subjects that are responsible for nature conservation. The Society has carried out over 40 different research, educational and promotional projects, in cooperation with numerous Croatian, foreign and international organizations. One of the most comprehensive ADIPA’s projects is the design, organization and implementation of “Natural Sciences Week” in different parts of Croatia. This composite project includes five different activities: fieldwork and laboratory scientific and professional research, educational activities (workshops and lectures), promotional and publishing activities. We organized these activities two times on the Adriatic island of Korčula and once in the special geological-botanical reserve and Natura 2000 site Đurđevački pijesci (Đurđevac sands) in Podravina region (Northern Croatia). Together with the Swiss Association SAVE (Safeguard for Agricultural Varieties in Europe) ADIPA co-organized 8th European seminar on agrobiodiversity “Agrobiodiversity and Nature Conservation” in Croatia. ADIPA’s publishing activities resulted with three published books so far: Zagorski puran / Zagorje Turkey (2014), Posavska guska / Posavina Goose (2016) and Đurđevečki peski / Đurđevac sands (2016).
