Project spotlight!

Five years after witnessing the removal of the first barriers from rivers in the Balkans, where three barriers were removed from the Montenegrin Vezišnica, work began on 6th May 2023 to remove the first river barriers in Croatia!

Out of a total of eight locations where artificial barriers are placed, the Park is managing four where minor interventions are needed, while WWF Adria has secured works with machinery to remove four large concrete barriers. By removing and intervening in eight barriers along the Bijela Rijeka, a total of eight kilometres of flow will be freed. The completion of the work is expected to end by the beginning of June.
