The mission of CZIP is to protect birds and other animal and plant species, their habitats, to monitor the biodiversity of Montenegro, to educate citizens, to popularise and promote scientific research, as well as to cooperate with other organizations involved in nature protection.

Our ultimate goal is to achieve harmony between people and nature as well as development based on the principles of the sustainable use of resources. Over the years we successfully implemented a vast number of environment-related projects, and for that, we received the Green Star in 2013, an award for public engagement and completed projects given by the Environmental Protection Agency, Aarhus Centres of Montenegro, and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe – OSCE. In 2019, CZIP was honored by the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) for the affirmation of human rights and civic activism on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the FAST FORWARD Human Rights Film Festival Montenegro, for the protection of the Ulcinj Salina.
