There are around sixty non-government organizations involved in environmental protection.

At various times in Moldova’s history networks of fortifications have been constructed. The first defences were built during the Roman occupation and known as “Trajan’s Waves”. Later examples of fortifications are from the medieval period. Sorocca Fortress, on the Nistru River, was one of nine stone fortresses built at this time.
