Eurosite Slovenian member awarded during Green Week
For its project WETMAN – Conservation and management of freshwater wetlands in Slovenia, our member Slovenian Institute for Nature Conservation received a Best LIFE Award during the Green Week in Brussels.
The overall goal of the WETMAN project was to re-establish a favourable conservation status for eight targeted freshwater habitats and six wetland habitat SCIs. The project sites – Pohorje, Zelenci, Vrhe, Planik, Gornji kal and Mura-Petišovci – contain different types of wetlands, all of which have suffered from a lack of appropriate management.
