Activities STEP 2.0


While in the first project we implemented activities on fish, birds and mammals, in the DANUBEPARKS STEP 2.0 project the energy was focused only on the Danube-wide monitoring of indicator species for river dynamics: Little-ringed Plover and Sand Martin.

This activity brought very valuable results and therefore drew the interest of the ICPDR. Within the second project, the monitoring was repeated as a part of the ICPDR’s Joint Danube Survey, and also included the downstream stretches of important tributaries. Additionally, monitoring indicator species links very well to our activities under Morphology, as the results gained from this monitoring can be directly used to plan restoration actions and measure their success.
