TOKA operates from Valbona Valley National Park, a more than 8,000ha IUCN Level II protected area since 1996.  Legislation is currently pending to combine Theth National Park, Valbona and Gashi Strictly Protected area into the 86,000 ha National Park of the Albanian Alps.  When combined with the neighboring protected areas of Montenegro and Kosova, this will form the largest protected area in South-east Europe, and arguably the greatest biodiversity and wilderness area in Europe.
