In this work, the author proceeds from the fact that the public in the Republic of Croa¬tia is occupied mostly with the political and economy crisis. The ecological crisis, equal¬ly dangerous, has been pushed into the background. The current ecological crisis is a cri¬sis of the whole civilization, it is therefore natural that ethnology and ethnologists have actively joined in finding ways to resolve it. The question is asked as to how ethnolo¬gists can work in the sense of "deep or indepth ecology" to better the quality of life and to preserve the cultural heritage. Traditions and cultural heritage are accumulated experi¬ence which determines the identity of a people. They are also an inexhaustible spring of perceptions which should not just be cast aside, already with an holistic approach to dis-cover these experiences and perceptions whose values cannot be applied today. These cul¬tural values which were in traditional societies passed on from generation to generation, must be learned by the urban citizen in another manner. The author favors the building and setting up of so-called ethno-parks where a visitor could experience a particular epoch in the original milieu. To clarify the link which connects ethnology and ecology, it would be necessary to open studies of cultural ecology or ethno- ecology.
