Nature Conservation

The  landscape in the Oulu region has a great deal of variety: sea, archipelago, low-lying coastal land, river valleys, agricultural land, and extensive marshes. Special value is attached to marsh ecosystems and to the land-uplift coast with its bird waters and seashore meadows. The flora and fauna are equally varied. Unfortunately, many of the species featured in the region have also become endangered.

The Oulu region has several nature preservation areas and natural landmarks. City of Oulu nature preservation areas are listed under Recreational use of greenspaces.
