Restoration and public awareness for Lake Ludas in Serbia

Restoration and public awareness for Lake Ludaš in Serbia.

“Setting conditions for the rehabilitation and restoration of wet meadows at lake Ludaš and realization of the Visitor Centre – Serbia/SGF2001 Final Report.” In 2001, the Ramsar Convention through its Small Grant Fund Programme was able to fund a two-phase project in Serbia intended to rehabilitate and restore wet meadows at Ludaško Lake, and to contribute to the realization of a Visitor Educational Centre. The site, located in Vojvodina province, is the oldest of nine Serbian Ramsar sites, in fact, o­ne of the few remaining natural lakes of the Pannonia Plain. In the ‘50s most of the wet and fen meadows were converted into hayfields, pastures and arable lands, leading to severe degradation of the original ecosystems. Ramsar’s Monica Zavagli provides an illustrated report o­n this now-completed project.
