Title of the project

Hovorany wetlands

Description

The goal was to create a system of pools including biotechnical features and vegetation changes consisting of planting geographically native species and establishing permanent grasslands.

Results

The project was able to use the character of the area (waterlogged agriculture land) to its advantage. The positive effect of the project can already be seen now as the area became a mosaic of endangered biotopes in our agricultural land and enhances the water retention potential of the area and its ability to withstand extreme weather. The biotopes that have been designed and implemented are a strong magnet for endangered species of animal and plants in the area. The exact species composition and its changes will, of course, derive from the future management of the area and other conditions.
