For this project, E.C.O. worked with the Austrian Alpine Association (OeAV) to compile an inventory of natural features in Carinthia which deserve to be classified as natural monuments. Potential natural monuments were assessed by experts, and the list of already existing natural monuments was updated. At the same time, the Arge NATURSCHUTZ conservation consortium developed the analogue conservation book and integrated it into a digital database. The outcomes of this project are guidelines on the designation of new natural monuments, and recommendations for looking after existing natural monuments.
