The Mura, Drava and Danube rivers form a highly valuable and free-flowing river corridor spanning 700 kilometres and connecting almost 1.000.000 hectares across Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary and Serbia - the "Amazon of Europe" - a truly European treasure. Stunning river landscape hosts amazing biological diversity and is a hotspot of rare species and natural habitats such as large floodplain forests, river islands, gravel and sand banks.
Rivers don´t know national borders as their waters flow and transport sediment cross borders. Animal species cross national boundary lines on their search for food every day and people living along these rivers feel the up- and downstream developments.Therefore, the river management also needs to be done on the transboundary level. Through the coop MDD project, we are working towards harmonization of Protected Areas management and develop a joint Management Programme for the future 5-country UNESCO Biosphere Reserve "Mura-Drava-Danube" (TBR MDD).
