Save the Danube biosphere reserve!

This page is devoted to one endangered territory - the Danube biosphere reserve. Now this valuable territory is under threat. Ministry of Transport of Ukraine plans to construct a deep-water navigation canal "The Danube - The Black Sea".

Construction of a canal according to the mentioned project will cause a degradation of the significant part of the reserve, killing one of the most valuable natural territories. The reserve is valuable breeding and feeding ground for birds, many of which are endangered species. 16 of the species inhabiting the resereve are on European Red list, 70 - on Ukrainian Red List. The reserve is also a Ramsar site, one of the 200 biodiversity rich wetlands of the world.
