Study tour to Serbia April 23rd - 28th 2018

We have an exciting new opportunity planned for April!

In partnership with the Institute of Nature Conservation of Vojvodina in eastern Serbia,  EuCAN has organised a Study Tour to this fascinating and little known area of Europe. Aimed at land managers and nature conservationists this tour will give an insight into how common problems associated with intensive agriculture and the natural environment are being addressed at a local level in Serbia, as well as providing an opportunity to see a wide range of animals and plants not found in the UK.

Vojvodina is an autonomous Province of Serbia which lies north of Belgrade in the south east part of the Pannonian Plain bordered by Croatia, Hungary and Romania. Divided by the Danube and Tisza rivers the area is predominantly agricultural, but has 5% designated as protected nature conservation areas,  including wetlands, salt pastures and woodlands important for birds, plants and mammals. As well as understanding and discussing the challenges of protecting and integrating nature conservation management into an intensively farmed landscape, the Group will also be introduced to other pressing issues such as the impact of erosion, drought, pesticides, pollution and invasive species in the wider landscape. We will be a small group (max 6) and be based in Novi Sad for five nights. Travel to sites will be in a minibus.
