Jungfruskär, Finland

Jungfruskär is situated in the Archipelago National Park, covering an area of 500 km2. The island is part of the municipality of Houtskär in the Turku region archipelago, bordering to Åland. The National Park is part of the biosphere area founded by UNESCO, and is not a traditional conservation are, rather its environment is unique due to the influence of human activity. The Archipelago National Park was founded in 1983. Since then, the nature of Jungfruskär has been protected and the overgrown meadows and pastures have been restored with the help of voluntary projects.
