NWRM Case Study 56 - Ecological reconstruction of the Gerai Pond, Romania

Green Borders - WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) started in January 2009, along the Danube river in Romania and Bulgaria, the LIFE Nature project "Transboundary conservation of the Phalacrocorax pygmaeus and Aythya nyroca in Romanian and Bulgarian key sites" to ensure living conditions for the two species by: nesting and feeding areas, reconstruction; implementing the best practices for fisheries management, developing alternatives for minimizing the damage delt by pygmy cormorants in fisheries, stoping the species killing generated by accidental or deliberated hunting, informing the local communities on the importance of the two species and attracting funds for those alternative activities that can support the special conservation measure necessary to the species.
