Objective

The project aims to implement integrated management measures for the restoration of the SPA site of Agras wetland, taking into consideration the management prescriptions derived by the Management Plan already prepared for the site, by a previous LIFE project, and involving the key stakeholders of the protected site.

Actions and means involved

The project involves the participation and close collaboration of all the competent authorities and bodies involved in the management of Agras wetland, for the implementation of the following actions:

Formulation of a Management Agreement for the conservation of the protected site and operation of the wetland Management Committee.

Elaboration of a Wetland Restoration Plan identifying and prescribing specific management solutions for restoring wetland functions and values, especially the support of priority bird species.

Implementation of management measures, according to the prescriptions of the restoration plan, including:

1. Establishment of riparian tree stands

2. Improvement of nesting and refuge habitats for priority species

3. Management of wet meadow habitats through controlled grazing

4. Management of reed beds and restoration of aquatic habitats

5. Restoration of fish and crayfish habitats

6. Implementation of a guarding – patrolling scheme for the site

7. Monitoring of priority species and key habitat parameters

8. Integration of wetland interpretation infrastructure

9. Operation of wetland interpretation facilities

10. Implementation of a wide public awareness campaign for the site

Expected results

Overall improvement of the SPA conservation status, for the proliferation of priority bird species.

Restoration of wetland functions and values for the benefit of biodiversity and local society.

Promotion of sustainable environmental interpretation and ecotourism activities, compatible with the conservation of the SPA site.

A three years demonstration of the win-win case of sustainable, conservation compatible and socio-economic acceptable management of the SPA site.
