In collaboration with the European Union (EU), the Government of Switzerland, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), civil society organizations (CSOs) have implemented 13 solutions that have improved the conditions for the survival of numerous endangered species of wildlife and plants in protected areas throughout Serbia.

Take a look at what these solutions are and make use of the good suggestions on what to visit in the future:

  • The Biological Society “Dr. Sava Petrović” has installed a system for early detection and suppression of fires in the nature monument “Lalinačka Slatina” near Niš, thus protecting the biological value of Slatina and reducing the risk of disasters in local communities in the surrounding area.
  • The Association of Nature Lovers “Riparia” from Subotica has installed 200 artificial nests, thus aiding in the recovery of the endangered bird species, the Eurasian roller.
  • The Citizens’ Association “Jadovnik – Oasis of Untouched Nature” from Prijepolje has created conditions for the rehabilitation of injured and exhausted birds of prey and scavengers in the southwest part of Serbia.
  • The “World Wide Fund for Nature Adria-Serbia” has installed electric fences in the Tara National Park and the Special Nature Reserve Uvac to prevent conflicts between humans and bears and wolves, thereby reducing the number of cases involving damage and unwanted reactions from the local population that threaten these rare species of wildlife.
  • Lectures and workshops on the importance of preserving endangered species and nature have been organized in Subotica, Niš, Novi Sad, and on Tara.

These solutions have encompassed practical measures to improve active protection in natural habitats and raise awareness of their significance for human well-being. In addition to the direct positive impact on wild species and their habitats, the implemented activities have contributed to strengthening resilience to climate change, as well as restoring the natural balance disrupted by human activity.
