Wetland on the river Mura
On the WWD, yesterday more then 50 people have been walked along the Mura river and their wetlands in Pomurje region, Slovenia. NGO TABRIH has organized this special educational day with visiting the area through walking more than 8 km. We have seen many interesting wetland habitats, which you can see it on the pictures below. As you know in Slovenia we have already 2 Localities protected by Ramsar Convention (Secovlje/saltwater and kocjan - Kras-water).
People in Pomurje Region want to join one Location more - Mura river between the Austrian border and Drava river as a special biosphere reserve in Europe. On the other site the danger of building of a Power Station on the river is still existing - so we are asking for help - how to protect the whole river area together with wetlands through Ramsar convention?
