Damn the Dam: - I am the River
I am the river, is a film produced by Ilir Kaso, it's not a protest against investments, it's an attempt to protect nature.
Greece authrities signed a document approving a project to divert rivers. There is listed VJOSA River which begins its journey near Vovousa village in north-western Greece and continues its natural flow towards the Adriatic Sea, in Vlora, southern Albania.
Moreover, this large braided river, will be interrupted on the Albanian side by a major dam in Kalivaç.
Take action today and help us to protect Vjosa. Together, we will make a diference!
Europes last remaining wild rivers flow throught the Balkans, providing stunning scenery and habitat to myriad plants and animals. But hundreds of dam projects threaten to do irreparable harm to the regions unique biospheres - to provide much needed electricity to the people who lives there.
PPNEA joined the winter bird monitoring session in the lakes of Greater Prespa, Lesser Prespa and Ohrid. It is worth mentioning here that on the other side of Prespa lake our PrespaNet partner the Society for Protection of Prespa (SPP) was counting the bird population in a simultaneous way so both sides of the lakes have been monitored.
Since its beginnings, the Balkan Lynx Recovery Programme (BLRP) has aimed to establish and strengthen a national monitoring network in Albania. Part of this network are people or groups, the activities of whom are linked with forest and nature, like foresters, hunters, environmental local NGO, environmentalists, etc.
A joint vision for the largest transboundary protected area in the Balkans to date - the Shara-Koritnik-Korab mountain range - was developed in a series of workshops among stakeholders in Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia. Nature conservation, traditional activities and sustainable development will be promoted in the near future.
