One of the natural wonders of the Republic of Moldova, the Lower Prut Nature Reserve is a true paradise for diverse bird, fish and plant species, protecting the area surrounding Lake Beleu and the Prut River.
Located in the south of the country, this biosphere reserve encompasses the Prut River and floodplain lakes. Two-thirds of the surface of the area is occupied by Lake Beleu. A wetland area extends along the Prut River, covering a mosaic of water, meadow and forest ecosystems. The main economic activity is agriculture, which provides 90% of the inhabitant’s income.
