The aim of the proposed measures of the LIFE WILDisland is to contribute significantly to the restoration of lateral connectivity and the improvement of the water regime in the area of the Medvedovská river branch system.
The autumn days from October 11th to 13th were marked by an active exchange of experiences in the management of valuable biotopes, where grazing is well combined with nature conservation. Together with stakeholders from Life-Subpannonic and Life-South, we embarked on a field trip to Hortobágy National Park.
On Friday 9th of September 2023 we took part in the prestigious event European night of researchers. It is an action that promotes science and research and organizations and institutions that either collect data, analyze it or use it in their practice.
Also this year, in the summer months of July and August, we again organized six rounds of children’s camps on Veľkolélsky ostrov Island, with facilities at Ekofarm Ostrov.
Each of the locations included in the Subpannonic project can boast of natural beauty that has the potential to attract many tourists. However, these are often areas that are not very well-known among tourists. How to kickstart tourism in such regions?
The Súľov hills are famous not only because of picturesque sceneries of rock gates and towers, but also because of a wealth of rare flora and fauna. Among other things, they were known among botanists in the past as a famous botanical site.
We exchanged knowledge with experienced colleagues from the administration of the Hortobágy National Park and NGO: Hortobágyi Környezetvédelmi Egyesület-Hortobágy Environmental Association.
On the occasion of the International Danube Day, a rich accompanying program was prepared for schools. At the BROZ stand, children had the most fun filling in thematic worksheets, where they learned a lot of interesting things about floodplain forests and Danube fish, putting together huge puzzle of a large Danube sturgeon fish or a photo booth with a large catfish.
BROZ is the coordinator of the Danube Art Master competition in Slovakia, a competition that since 2004 has brought together thousands of children from the countries through which the Danube River flows. The aim is to encourage children to recognize the value and importance of rivers.
In addition to the successful activities in the Strážovské vrchy, as part of the LIFE Panalp project, we also started to restore rare grass habitats in the Samll Carpathians. In the westernmost Slovak mountain range, this spring, in cooperation with the Museum of the City of Bratislava, we started grazing on the Devín Castle Rock.
