Although this ornithological reserve does not present a fully satisfactory solution to the problem of the declining griffon vulture population on the island of Krk, its magnificent landscapes and many other natural values justify its existence. If it were to succeed in providing more effective protection not only to the griffon vultures but also to other rare species of birds, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and to endemic plants and plant communities, as well as in providing genuine protection and care for its landscapes of unparalleled beauty, this special reserve could be capable of preserving priceless natural and scientific values for future generations.
