LIFE MANSALT project concluded

At the end of September our five year long LIFE MANSALT project was concluded. The project activities which started in October 2010 aimed to improve the conservation status of target animals and their habitats. The project team comprised more than 40 employees of the company SOLINE.

Results of the LIFE+ MANSALT project:
- More than 500 ha of SSNP are protected against high tides (reconstruction of more than 4,000 m of embankments)
- More than 8,000 m of edge channels dug along the edges of salt basins to prevent colonies of 
saltpan birds being reached by foxes and martens 
- Regulated habitat for the European pond terrapin
- Guidelines for environmentally-friendly regulation of quays in Jernej Channel
- Awareness building as to the significance of biodiversity conservation at Natura 2000 sites 
(via 100,000 printed leaflets, 80 educational workshops, 2 films on biodiversity of the pans, website, contributions in the municipal Newsletter) 
- Exchange of experience in ecological reconstruction with the coastal wetlands managers

Many thanks to the working team that worked hard to reach all the project goals!
