||The special natural patrimony from Lapusului County is characterized by a great richness, variety and diversity, being marked by three protected areas and having a scientific, touristic and beautifully scenery value: The Natural Monument “Babei Keys”, The Natural Reservation “Arcer – Tibles” and The Natural Reservation of “Lapus Gorge”. Field investigations have started from the following premise: serious damage of the environment, nature degradation, the need to preserve the integrity and diversity of nature and using natural resources in an equitable and durable mode. The interactions between man and nature are and have always been permanently, but they have changed in time, taking place an involution or a degradation of the value of nature in people’s perception.
