WP2: Restoring and improving habitats

Specific objective: Complete restoration of the most degraded ponds.

  • Expected results: Three ponds, at least 36 ha (ponds with surrounding landscape) restored, habitat significantly improved for two populations, or 25 % of total Balkan Terrapin population of Croatia. One of the ponds (in Ston field project area) will enable 7% increase of Balkan Terrapin population in Croatia ensured by our reinforcement actions during the project (with estimated 45 % gain in the long term).

Specific objective: Control succession in ponds, canals and adjacent nesting sites.

  • Expected result: 2850 ha of restored wetland habitats across 4 Natura 2000 areas, including canals in Konavle field and Ston field project area.

Specific objective: improve habitat quality in 3 Natura 2000 sites by setting up basking sites and improving connectivity.

  • Expected result: at least 8 of basking sites across at 6 ponds set up, 1 tunnel adapted to be a functional ecological corridor between two ponds in Majkovi project area.
