The Dynamic LIFE Lines Danube project aims to maintain and improve the Danube wetlands in eastern Austria and western Slovakia. The focus is on improving the condition of the soft meadows, which develop in the transition areas between river and forest, and their characteristic flora and fauna.
The two essential elements for the achievement of projects' goals are dynamics and lifelines.
Due to the Europe-wide importance of the last riparian forests on the Austrian and Slovak Danube, the EU supports the project within the framework of the LIFE funding program.
The renaturation measures will be implemeted in the following Danube sections:
- Spittelauer Arm (AT)
- Haslau-Regelsbrunn (AT)
- Bratislava (SK)
- Gabčíkovo (SK)
- Medveďov (SK)
- Kľúčovec (SK)
In Slovakia, measures are also being carried out to improve alluvial forests and restore the original composition of tree species.
