Description

The project aims to protect a very valuable area for its biodiversity – the wetland/ nature reserve Garla mare – Salcia, which represents one of the last remaining natural areas of the Green Corridor of the Danube. The project promotes nature conservation activities in a rural development context of the local communities (Salcia, Gârla Mare, Vrata si Pristol – Mehedinti County) that are settled near the protected area.


The main activities of the project are consistent with the rural development planning for the region, the promotion of best agricultural practices and ecologically sound tourism activities as sustainable alternatives which to assure the nature protection of the area on a long term.
