The Eco Center of Blagaj was inaugerated in 2007 with the aim of contributing to nature conservation and increasing environmental awareness. It is a project under the non-profit organization Novi Val. Nine years after it was established, the youth club Novi Val started the project entitled "Eco development in rural areas of Bosnia nad Herzegovina and Serbia." Within this project, Novi Val is carrying out activities through several programs: protection of the white vultures, development of cattle farming, protection of the indigenous Tornjak dog species, protection of the Velez Pramenka sheep, preservation of biodiversity, protection of cultural and historical monuments of Blagaj, as well as educational and ecotourism programs.
