Our tour through the southern parks of Croatia

The first mention of fishing in the Adriatic comes from Telašćica. Although water is a resource that is best recognized on Velebit, the largest income comes from the forest. Water dissapeared from the Vrana lake and the same could happen to the medicinal herbs. People plant potatoes over 1000 meters above sea level on Biokovo. The symbolism of the number 46 on Lastovo is quite interesting – there are 46 islands, 46 churches, 46 fields. Mljet has a big problem with the illegal fishing... In the week of April 7, we went on a very brave adventure full of challenges: shall we actually succeed having six workshops on protected area benefit assessment in only 8 days? We started our adventure from Zagreb: the two "pandas" Andrea Štefan and Kasandra-Zorica Ivanić, with Marijana Jurić from the Ministry of Environmental and Nature Protection and Biljana Opačić from the State Institute for Nature Protection. Illogical Velebit: water, milk, cheese, forests ... Velebit Nature Park

Naša turneja po hrvatskim parkovima

Prvi spomen ribarstva na Jadranu potječe sa Telašćice. Iako je voda resurs koji je najbolje prepoznat na Velebitu, najveći prihodi dolaze od šuma. Na Vranskom jezeru nestala je voda, a opasnost prijeti i ljekovitom bilju. Na Biokovu sade krumpir iznad 1000 metara nadmorske visine te uzgajaju autohtone pasmine: ovcu pramenku, bušu, dalmatinskog magarca i šarenu kozu. Zanimljiva je simbolika broja 46 na Lastovu - 46 otočića, 46 crkvica, 46 polja. Mljet ima velik problem ilegalnog ribolova … U tjednu od 7. aprila uputili smo se na vrlo hrabru avanturu prepunu izazova: hoćemo li zaista uspjeti odraditi šest radionica procjene dobrobiti i vrijednosti zaštićenih područja? Hoćemo li uspjeti uloviti svaki trajekt? Hoćemo li pronaći smještaj u svakom parku i na svakom otoku? Bezbroj pitanja, ali dok je volja tu, ništa nije teško  iako se cijela priča odigrava uoči Uskršnjih praznika i za nju imamo samo 8 dana! Prva je radionica održana u Gospiću u PP Velebit Nelogičnosti Velebita: vo

Worrying nemesis of vultures in Serbia and Vojvodina

"The Stop the Poisoning of vultures" action A number of registered cases of carbofuran poisoning and discovered baits has significantly increased in the last ten years. The consequences of poisoning have become drastical, especially the number of poisoned vultures. 115 pairs of white-tailed eagle nest in Serbia. During some years up to 10 units poisoned with carbofuran that is used in agriculutre under the name Furadan. We stress out that Furadan is prohibited in the European Union because it is extremely dangerous and harmful. The imperial eagle, white-tailed eagle, buzzard, raven, marsh harrier, black kite and other birds that eat animal corpses are particularly endangered. All the above mentioned species are strictly protected. Damage price for killing or poisoning a white-tailed eagle is 400 000 dinars and for a harrier and a buzzard it is 160 000 dinars. Among birds, numerous mammals are also harmed by poisoning.  Only a small number of poisoned birds get found and

Hidden camera ''stalking'' Balcanic lynx in Pelister National Park

Slika
Some of the animals recorded by the hidden camera Before the winter started, hidden cameras in Pelister National Park had registered night recordings of the lynx (Lynx Linx) in the national park area. After that a mutual action of the Macedonian Ecological Society (MES) from Skopje and Pelister National Park to install more hidden cameras was initiated in order to get a photo or a video recording of the lynx in the Pelister area. Goran Ivanov, the biologist from MES guided the action of installing cameras in 20 locations on the park area along with members of the ranger team of Pelister National Park who were also a part of the team. The cameras have confirmed the abundance of mammals that live in the park because they have recorded numerous animal species: bear, wolf, fox, wild boar, deer, doe, wild cat, rabbit, badger... However, lynx still has not been recorded by any of the cameras! The pursuit of this endangered animal specie is still in progress and the rangers and MES exp

Buk the bear – another attraction of Una National Park

Una NP staff with Buk the bear The already well-known bear called Ljutoč was caught in a humane way and handled veterinarily for the purpose of scientific and research activities last year through the ''Wildlife and Life of Carnivores of Una National Park'' project. He got the name by the location where he was found – the Ljutoč Valley. One of the alarms of the traps in the Park was heard again yesterday. In fact, the Public Institution Una National Park has continued animal monitoring after the project finished and it is a constant task of the park employees. After the warden had checked the location (which is also a standard procedure), it was noticed that a huge bear caught itself into one of the traps. All the members of the intervention team from Bihać, Zagreb and Sarajevo that had been in pre-alert for more than a month immediately headed to the Park. After the sedation, the animal was checked by a team of experts. All the necessary dimensions and samples

The Balkan lynx perhaps exists in the eastern Montenegro

Slika
Marina Đurović carried out the survey Marina Đurović and Aleksandar Perović, biology experts from National Parks of Montenegro and NGO Center for Protection and Research of Birds in Montenegro, have concluded that there is the biggest possibility of Balkan lynx presence in the eastern parts of Montenegro, after a survey that was carried out through more than 240 questionnaires. The Balkan lynx is a species, considered as an endangered one. The ''Balkan Lynx Recovery Program'' project in Montenegro, has been implemented since June 2013 in order to ensure its survival. According to data available in the area of Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro, there are only 40 to 60 units of the Balkan lynx. This species of wild cat can grow up to 65 centimeters of height and weigh up to 30 kilograms. The survey was carried out in 43 areas of priority surface which was divided in squares of 10 x 10 kilometers.  A total number of 241 people were questioned. 10 profiles

Sutjeska National Park – offering traditional and home-made products

Slika
This year the Public Institution of Sutjeska National Park – Tjentište is going to offer to its visitors an opportunity to feel all the benefits of the home-made products from this area during their stay in the Park for the first time. In a wish that the visitors feel more comfortable, home-made products from households in the Park and its surroundings will bring them pleasure. Registered farm households and agricultural manufacturers will have an opportunity to offer all sorts of their home-made products in the recently constructed vending booths (shown in the photo above) with mutual agreement with the authorities of the National Park.

Do inhabitants of the area around Papuk Nature Park live from stone, wine or chocolate?

Slika
Jankovac Waterfall What is the value of forests for the local inhabitants of the area around Papuk Nature Park? Are there problems with poaching? Are there enough tourists in the park? Do people live better from stone, wine or chocolate? Those are just some of the questions that the interest groups of Papuk Nature Park in collaboration with the park management tried to answer on March 20 in the workshop that was organized by WWF within the Dinaric Arc Parks project. The 9th value assesment workshop of the only Croatian protected area gathered the largest number of participants up to now – 36! The feisty discussion has represented us this Croatian forest gem as a park in which the majority of things is centered around forests. It could be presumed from the photo we saw over an entire wall of the conference hall in the administrative building of the park in Velika: it showed a forest area which none of the countries in the world would be ashamed of. On April 17 this year the park

Novi turistički sadržaji u NP Tara

Slika
Tara za sve naziv je projekta kojim se financiraju novi turistički sadržaji U Nacionalnom parku Tara u toku je realizacija projekta ”Tara za sve” koji ima za cilj da doprinese održivom razvoju ovog područja kroz unapređenje turističkih sadržaja. Finansiranje je obezbeđeno u okviru granta UNDP/GEF "Podrška održivom finansiranju sistema zaštićenih područja u Srbiji". Pored unapređenja turističkih sadržaja projekat ima i naglašenu socijalnu dimenziju, jer će omogućiti veću pristupačnost osobama sa posebnim potrebama Nacionalnom parku Tara. Projektnim aktivnostima na području NP Tara biće dodati novi turistički sadržaji: prva edukativna staza u Srbiji u zaštićenom području koja je univerzalnog dizajna, odnosno prilagođena i osobama sa posebnim potrebama, i biciklistička ruta. Staza univerzalnog dizajna duga 400 m i opremljena interaktivnim-edukativnim tablama na Brajevoj azbuci biće locirana na Mitrovcu. Takođe, zaposleni će proći obuku za komunikaciju i interpretaciju p

Anketiranje je provela Marina Đurović iz JPNPCG Biolozi Nacionalnih parkova Crne Gore i NVO Centar za zaštitu i proučavanje ptica CZIP Marina Đurović i Aleksandar Perović nakon anketiranja preko 240 osoba došli su do zaključka da je najveća mogućnost za prisustvo balkanskog risa u istočnim djelovima Crne Gore. Naime, ta vrsta smatra se ugroženom, a da bi se obezbijedio njen opstanak od jula 2013. se radi na projektu “Program oporavka balkanskog risa”. Prema dostupnim podacima na prostoru Makedonije, Albanije, Kosova i Crne Gore nalazi se svega 40 do 60 primjeraka balkanskog risa. Ova vrsta divlje mačke može dostići visinu do 65 centimetara i težinu od 30 kilograma. Upitnici su sprovedeni u 43 prioritetnih kvadranara 10x10 kilometara. Ukupan broj ispitanih osoba je 241, a 10 profila je uzeto kao najrelevantnije za sprovođenje upitnika. Tako su ispitivani veterinari, lovočuvari, šumari, lovci, poljoprivrednici, ljubitelji prirode... Kroz ovaj projekat omogućeno je i praćenje drug

Na Međunarodni dan sreće, 21.3., bihaćki desetogodišnjaci, učenici dva peta razreda iz osnovne škole „Prekounje“, kreirali su „Poruku sreće“ i poslali je u svijet. Za realizciju te priče odabrana je glavna atrakcija Nacionalnog parka "Una" - Štrbački buk, jer je sam po sebi portal čiste energije i izvorne radosti, te idealan prostor za shvaćanje svjesnog upravljanja energijom.
