For several years now, WWF Adria has been promoting the permanent protection of rivers as one of the models for the protection of the biological and landscape diversity of our country and the preservation of free-flowing rivers. This decision shows that this model has been recognized by the institutions as well “, commented Irma Popović Dujmović from WWF Adria. At the end of November, the Ministry of Culture declared the entire mentioned landscape, ie the landscape of the Kupa River, a cultural asset. Also, in order to preserve travertine, travertine barriers and thresholds, activities on the river that would endanger them in any way are not allowed. The proclamation of the Krupa River Cultural Landscape in the Obrovac area as a cultural asset by the Ministry of Culture is an important decision for the permanent protection of the Krupa River, WWF Adria said, urging institutions to apply the decision to other equivalent river landscapes.last_img
