A study trip entitled “Cooperation and nature protection in the area NP Neusiedler See – Seewinkel a Fertő tó” organized by the Slovak Environmental Agency SEV Dropie was held on 2nd – 3rd May 2017.
The study trip was designed primarily for self-government, project workers and key stakeholders at the SPA Ostrovné lúky.
The Neusiedler Lake and the adjacent localities of both our Southern neighbors belong to the most important waterbird localities in Central Europe. This area has also been included in UNESCO’s World Natural Heritage and national parks have been declared both on the Hungarian and Austrian sides of the lake. To protect nature they have also created a number of new habitats that we plan to visit within our program. The active creation and management of habitats contributes to the favorable natural environment, and therefore the area is highly visited by tourists and tourism brings money directly to the region.
The study trip was funded under LIFE12 project NAT/SK/001155 Conservation of birds in SPA Ostrovné lúky, activity E.6 Experience sharing, educating and workshops for project personnel, key stakeholders and decision makers.
