Featured Project


The Mura-Drava-Danube UNESCO Biosphere Reserve incorporates five countries that feed into Europe’s mightiest river: the Danube. This vast river system is host to rare and varied species such as the endemic Danube crested newt and has a vital role to play in adapting to climate change. Over the years, the landscape has been degraded by unsustainable practices including hydropower development, intensive agriculture, and sediment excavation. The transboundary Biosphere agreement provides unprecedented opportunities for collaboration and nature recovery on a large scale, and the work carried out as part of the project will catalyse additional restoration.
