Žuvintas Biosphere Reserve is the oldest protected territory in Lithuania founded in 1937. In 2011, Žuvintas Biosphere Reserve was included in the World Network of Biosphere Reserves of UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme. The biosphere reserve is a Natura 2000 territory enrolled into the list of Designated Wetlands and Shallow Waters of International Importance (Ramsar Convention).
One can learn about natural values of the reserve and their protection during a visit to the Reserve Visitors Centre. Bird watching is offered through telescopes and binoculars from an observation tower on the shore of the Lake of Žuvintas; there is also an educational track with a small tower for bird observation. For students, a nature classroom was equipped.
