Title of the project
Slano Kopovo Special Nature Reserve
to protect protect an important stopping point along the Adriatic Flyway and preserve an area of high biodiversity by restoring the agricultural lands into their originally state: meadows, pastures and reed lands.
With the support of EuroNatur and the Eeconet Action Fund the Novi Becej Hunters Association has been buying the land. The land was then rewetted through construction of a canal that feeds the salt lake. It then announced a hunting ban on the area.
The project was initiated and managed by Novi Becej Hunters Association
