Description

The project will take place in Nemunas delta regional park, Kniaupas – Purvalankis – Kroku Lanka shallow water and/or regularly flooded floodplains in Silute district (Western Lithuania).

The project aims to solve the problems of loss of valuable spawning and valuable habitats for waders due to their overgrowth with reed and cattail. Also the project aims to solve the problem of poaching and illegal fishing in the Curonian Lagoon and Nemunas delta by local community efforts.
