Ljubljana's nature and biodiversity is one of her most charming characteristics, and a program for the protection of this is in place with completion aimed for 2018. Protection really is the key word here, as natural features of the area will be guarded. We aren't talking about anyone being chained to any trees, more protection through legislation and common sense. Degraded ecosystems will also see new life pumped into them.
