Sand Martin and Kingfisher Along River Drava

This spring, as for many before we organized several voluntary actions of managing river sandbanks along river Drava. Managing of sandbanks on river Drava is crucial for the populations od Sand martin and Kingfisher. Without continuous help of many volunteers, both species would probably disappear from this area.


Below we invite you to watch a short video clip from this years voluntary action of managing sandy riverbanks along river Drava. Part of a video clip was filmed on 10. april 2016 near village Mala vas, where 15 volunteers cleared and prepared riverbank for this breeding season. Were they successful? See it for yourself!
