World Wetlands Day in Austria
Good Morning from Salzburg!
We also would like to report about some site management activities in wetland (no Ramsar site, but Only protected landscape): Two weeks ago the area of the Hollersbacher Feuchtwiesen has been cleared up in the frame of a collective action of the Salzburg region, WWF, OBf-AG, the mountain and nature rescue service and the Pinzgauer biotope protection group. Since the 12ha site was put under a protection scheme 20 years ago, the cultivation has been partly abandoned, which supported the spreading of the grey alder. Following up on the recent management activities a land-use and management concept shall be developed and implemented together with the land owners. Please find attached some pictures about this successful action, where about 20 people participated in.
With best regards, Josef Fischer-Colbrie
