The CoastNet LIFE project is a cooperation project of Finland and Estonia for restoring important coastal and archipelagic habitats, such as sunlit environments, coastal meadows, herb-rich forests, wooded pastures and river basins. Restoration of these areas improves the living conditions of e.g. the Apollo butterfly and the Freshwater pearl mussel. The area to be managed includes Finnish coastal nature from the Bothnian Bay to the Hanko Archipelago as well as the northern coast of Estonia in e.g. Tallinn area, the Kolga Bay Lanscape Conservation Area and the Lahemaa National Park.
The CoastNet LIFE project has received funding from the LIFE Programme of the European Union.
