During the period 1998-2001, NAGREF implemented at the Agras site, part of a larger LIFE NATURE project, which carried out site ornithological and habitat assessments, the site Management Plan, a series of public meetings for wetland conservation, as well as public awareness activities, with most significant the establishment of a small Wetland Information Center.
