A team of the Donau-Auen National park, Austria visited the Tati islands, Hungary on October 5th. The visit was hosted by the experts from the Duna-Ipoly National Park (DINPI).
The experts first visited the target site of a newly developed Danube4all project close to Vac, where the DANUBEPARKS association has provided for the partial opening and adaptation of two existing groynes in order to improve the hydrology of the area and provide better fish habitats.
After that, the two teams headed upstream, crossed the Danube on a ferryboat and took a motor boat from Esztergom to the Tati islands, where DINPI has already started the transformation of an artificial forest plantation on an area of 2.6 ha. The site will be prepared for planting already this autumn and planting indigenous tree species (e.g. oak, ash, elm, poplar, etc.) will start in late autumn 2022 or early spring 2023.
The experts also discussed the existing infrastructure on the islands, the road access, the current forest management plants and possibilities to maximize the impact of the WILDisland project activities and cooperation.
