Reconnecting floodplains to restore ecosystem services and re-establish biodiversity, this project focuses on restoring the cut-off floodplains to the Danube for the benefit of people, habitats and species. The project focuses on improving knowledge on habitat locations and conditions, helping to increase the sturgeon population of the Lower Danube. Reconnecting the floodplains will help restore natural hydrological processes, create a better habitat for flora and fauna, and improve the quality and quantity of natural resources as a source of income for local inhabitants. The project also involves monitoring and ensuring the proper implementation of environmental legislation through participation in the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR) and in national level meetings with government authorities. This work is part of the WWF-TCCC global partnership focused on freshwater.
