In Bozcaada, which is the subject of the research, the research area has been investigated with GAP analysis for the purpose of Systematic Conservation Planning for sustainability and biological diversity. Within the scope of GAP analysis method, field studies were carried out and some photographs of the area and biological facts were taken. The biological data of the area were compiled and their protection status was viewed. The data obtained were compiled and biotope map was procreated and life associations were determined. Subsequently, representative species were identified. After a clear determination of the protection aims, the protection system in the area was investigated and the gaps in the protection were determined. The gaps in the conservation system were replaced by the proposed conservation areas in line with the determined conservation objectives.
