LIFE WILDisland aims to establish a best-practice example for an EU ecological corridor, supported by the EU Commission and strategic partners such as the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR), the EU Strategy for the Danube Region and the Ramsar Convention.
More than 70% of the LIFE WILDisland project budget will be invested into concrete conservation and restoration actions. The hydro-morphological regime of over 48 km of waterbodies will be improved. The river dynamics and hydrological regime will be restored on 437 ha. In addition to that, some 351,9 ha of natural floodplain forests will be improved through transformation of hybrid poplar plantations, reforestation, and invasive alien species management.
The project provides for the following actions:
