DANUBEPARKS is very happy to share with you the brand new LIFE WILDisland website, available at: https://wildisland.danubeparks.org/
WILDisland online map is still available, presenting more than 900 islands (area of 138,000 hectares) along the river course. These sites represent still intact river dynamics; they demonstrate the original beauty of natural rivers, hosting valuable habitats with unique flora and fauna. They differ strongly in their size, structure and origin, but together they form the Danube Wild Island Habitat Corridor.
147 islands were identified as the most natural islands, representing some of the rare wilderness areas in Europe.
WILDislands - The Danube Wild Island Habitat Corridor:
- strengthens the ecological connectivity along the Danube river
- preserves the natural wilderness in the heart of Europe
- promotes river dynamics as the key driver for undisturbed nature
- demonstrates good practice for cross-sector and cross-border cooperation
