Restoring the health of Lake Prespa

The beautiful but environmentally vulnerable region of the Prespa Lake Basin is home to more than 2,000 species of fish, birds, mammals and plants. Many of these species are unique and many are in danger of dying out if their habitat is not protected.

 

This eco-system has suffered greatly over the last 40 years—above all from pollution caused by unsustainable farming practices, together with erosion and the presence of untreated waste and wastewaters.
