A pivotal group of individuals played a decisive role in its formation – the environmentalist and architect-planner, ThymiosPapayannis, the internationally renowned conservationist and philanthropist, Dr Luc Hoffmann, and the biologist, Dr Giorgos Catsadorakis. Together they laid the foundation for the establishment of the SPP, with the help and support of a series of non-profit organisations.
