The paper describes in detail the characteristics and significance of three Special Nature Reserve (SNR) in Serbia: Zasavica, Uvac and Stari Begej – Carska Bara. In particular, it is emphasized the natural resources of each of the reserves, as well as their importance and significance in the development of Serbia. For the purposes of this research, it was carried out surveys of the population and visitors in all three areas of the SNR. The subject of our research, protected natural resources and values, and their impact on the development of Serbia were observed in terms of the relationship of economy and ecology. The principal aim was to identify the value attitudes of the population and visitors in relation to the protection and special values that are located within protected natural areas. The paper presents the results of the comparative analysis of the population and visitors surveys for these three SNR. Our results pointed out the key problems faced by the SNR in Serbia during the conservation of the natural resources values, their protection, management, and projection of their future. The key investigative findings of our study are related to the fact that natural resources, located within the three reserves, are so important, that it «cannot be expressed in money», that the states needs to fund the reserve survival, and finally that privatisation or sale of any of these SNRs should not be carried out.
