English title: Plan for establishment of protected areas in state-owned lands of Northern Finland.

The article is a proposal for areas suitable for protected areas in state-owned lands in Northern Finland written in 1926. The author describes eight areas, namely Oulankajoki area in Northern Kuusamo, Kutsajoki area in Kuolajärvi, Pyhätunturi in Kemijärvi, Pisavaara in Rovaniemi, Pallastunturi and Ounastunturi area, Malla fells in Kilpisjärvi, Pääskyspahta area in Petsamo and Heinäsaari in Petsamo.

Each of these areas represent special features in Finnish nature, samples of which should be reserved in pristine state. Furthermore, economic costs of protection are small. The resident population is in general against protection. The protection should therefore be organized so that disadvantages caused by limitations to land use, such as grazing, reindeer husbandry, fishing and hunting, are minimized.

According to Finnish Nature Conservation Act, all wildlife should be protected in the conservation areas. Protection of wolverine and wolf is, however, difficult because of the harm they cause for domestic animals. Protection of bear is possible in most of the proposed protected areas.
