On the 10th of May, the sluice of Koula opened, following the decisions of the 11th meeting of the WMC. The water level of Lesser Prespa reached a sufficient level and has already flooded many wet meadows,
The influence of climate change is strongly affecting the wetlands, as important bird species are abandoning their nests. The most important reason for this is the shrinking size of their feeding grounds, which is directly related to lower levels of water in the lake.
As part of the project’s preparatory actions, a number of studies have been carried out on various flora and fauna species, the results of which will feed into plans for the management of the reedbeds.
