Cooperation for conservation

DANUBEPARKS - Network Of Protected Areas

DANUBEPARKS is the Network of Protected Areas along the Danube River, working together since 2009. It currently consists of 16 Protected Areas from 9 Danube countries, all hotspots for biodiversity.

We improve consistency of nature protection activities and strengthen our voice on European level. Our main fields of work include restoration of dynamic river habitats, floodplain forest & meadow management, protection and monitoring of rare species, and nature tourism.

The Danube River is a green lifeline for biodiversity. While the Network of Danube Protected Areas preserves the most valuable sites, habitat fragmentation limits efforts to preserve a cohesive ecosystem. DANUBEparksCONNECTED has initiated the DANUBE HABITAT CORRIDOR campaign to counteract fragmentation. More
