#Sava TIES project started

Regionally significant project „Preserving Sava River Basin Habitats through Transnational Management of Invasive Alien Species – Sava TIES“ started on 1 June 2018. During the next three years this project will be implemented in four countries of the Sava River basin: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. The main project goal is to find an effective solution for permanent eradication of invasive alien plants, to reduce habitat fragmentation and improve the connectivity of the transnational ecological corridor. Invasive alien plants are species that are non-native to our ecosystem, but are primarily human introduced. They are spreading uncontrolled in the Sava River basin, having a negative effect or even pushing out other native species, reduceng soil fertility and cultivable agricultural surfaces, causing major problems in flood control and much more. To conclude – they change important European natural habitats and are very difficult to eradicate. It is not only a nature protection problem; it also has negative effect on human health and causes major economic losses. It is estimated that the damage invasive alien species (IAS) have on the global economy is more than USD 1,4 trillion per year, representing nearly 5% of the world economy.
Project is co-financed by EU funds (European Regional Development Fund - ERDF and IPA). The total value is EUR 1,604.137! Project partners are EuroNatur Foundation, Public Institution Ljubljansko barje Nature Park, Lonjsko Polje Nature Park Public Institution, Public Institution Green Ring, Public Company National Park “Una” LLC Bihać, Center for Environment, Institute for Nature Conservation of Voivodina Province, Nature Conservation Movement Sremska Mitrovica and Public Enterprise „Vojvodinašume“. As part of the project, different methods of effective removal or eradication of IAS plants such as Japanese knotweed, False indigo bush and Tree of heaven which are already causing serious damage in the Sava River basin will be tested on seven pilot areas in four countries. The emphasis is on cross-sectoral cooperation, as we can only achieve desired results through cooperation of different stakeholders, national/local governments and local inhabitants.
The significance of this project lies in the strengthening and improving Sava Parks network of protected areas, established in 2015 to jointly respond to nature conservation challenges in the Sava River basin. Its long-term goal is to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the river Sava from its source to confluence.
Invasive alien species are the main challenge of biodiversity conservation in the 21st century. They are also our main challenge! Follow us on our official website and on social networks. Visit beautiful Sava River; take photos, publish them… and don't forget to use #SavaTIES!

The various Aspects of Amorpha
(17-04-2019)

Lonjsko polje

Amorpha fruticosa is one of the fifteen species of the genus Amorpha.They all are growing in North America and belong to the family of the Pea Plants (lat. Papilionaceae). The name „Amorpha“ means „shapeless“ because all Amorpha species have flowers with only one petal instead of five like most of the other Pea Plants. This petal corresponds to the „standard“ or engl. „flag“ and is deeply purple coloured, wich produces a vivid contrast with the bright yellow polen sacs when the plant is in full bloom. This has been the reason to introduce Amorpha fruticosa in the beginning of the 18th century (about 1724) as a garden shrub to Europe.

The American Indians have used the twigs of Amorpha as bedding and the European settlers tried it like Indigo – an Old World genus of Pea Plants – as a possible source of a blue dye. Seemingly the result was not convinding – hence they named the bush „Bastard Indigo“.

For more than 200 years the plant has been sold and used to decorate gardens. But in the first half of the twentieth century railway engineers began to plant it on the banks of dams to be constructed in swampy areas. This was also practiced near Novska, where the railway to Bosnia crosses Veliki Strug, Sava and Una, the surroundings of which are known for their heavy and irregularely occuring inundations. The plan had been to fix the loose soils of the new railway dams, but exactly here Amorpha fruticosa showed its extreme invasive capacity.

Very quickly the tiny pods (fruits) with the small seeds inside and produced in abundance found their way to other places with disturbed soil-profiles and full insolation. Along new roads and forest tracks Amorpha began to form hedge-like thickets and from there it „jumped“ into areas where modern forestry had large forest-felled blocks. Long before the natural Slavonian Oakforest could regrow, Amorpha covered the clearings and made it extremely difficult and expensive to regenerate the famous forests of Holm-Oak and Hornbeam.

A further impulse for the Amorpha-invasion became the implementation of land-mines in large tracks of former grazing-land during the war 1991 to 1995. The areas most affected was the Poganovo Polje near Mlaka where Amorpha even today is still covering many hectares as a uniform thicket up to four meters high.

But suddenly Amorpha showed an unexpected new side - it became a source of a very aromatic honey which sells extremely well! Since more than 10 years now big trucks with more than 100 bee-hives each are beeing brought to the Amorpha-thickets in the whole area of  Lonjsko Polje, Mokro Polje and Sunjsko Polje in late spring and early summer. Together with mint (lat.: Mentha pulegium) – honey and the tasty white wine Škrlet from Potok it is now part of the culinary specialities of the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park.

Another positive point for Amorpha is its benefit for certain species of birds: So, the Turtle Dove (lat.: Streptopelia turtur) and the Red Shrike (lat.: Lanius collurio) can be found in nearly every thicket of Amorpha fruticosa. So, the balance between good and bad, dangerous or beneficial properties of this invasive American immigrant is not easily defined.

SAVA TIES - INVASIVE SPECIES ARE ENDANGERING THE VALUABLE AREA OF TIŠINA
(28-03-2019)

Lonjsko polje

It is necessary to take immediate steps to address the problem of the presence of invasive alien plant species in the area of the Tišina, one of the last wetlands of this type in the continental region of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was declared as natural rarity in 1985. The conclusion is a result of the field visits to this area organized by the Center for Environment.
“Field visits were organized as part of the project “Preserving Sava River Basin Habitats through Transnational Management of Invasive Alien Species (Sava TIES)” to determine the presence of invasive plant species, one of the major threats to ecosystems today. One of the visits was joined by experts from Serbia and Hungary with whom was concluded that the presence of controversial species is evident and that steps need to be taken to solve this problem,” said Iva Miljevic from the Center for Environment.
Due to the presence of numerous habitat types and species that are endangered at European level and protected by international conventions, the area of the Tisina, located directly along the Sava River, is proposed as a potential Natura 2000 site. Although the area of the proposed protected area is located at the territory of both entities, the legal procedure for the protecion is officially initiated only by Republic of Srpska. In the past few years, the Study for the designation of a protected area has been intensively worked on and the proposed category is that of protected habitat.
Invasive alien species are becoming an increasing ecological, but also an economic problem in the world. They adversely affect biodiversity, human health and/or cause economic damage. By their presence, natural balance of existing natural ecosystems is disturbed, which is why autochthonous, domestic species are often at risk of extinction.
“In Bosnia and Herzegovina, little or no attention is given to the problem of invasive alien species, so the impact of these species on autochthonous species and ecosystems is not well known. With an exceptionally low level of public awareness of this problem, there is still no strategy to combat them in BiH, ” explains Iva Miljevic. For this reason, Center for Environment will work in the future on research and map the plant communities that inhabit the area of the Tisina.
“Through this research, we want to obtain detailed information on the vegetation of this area as well as the presence of invasive alien species and their distribution. In the continuation of the project we will deal with their eradication, as well as provide recommendations for further management. These activities, as well as adequate monitoring, will provide insight into this problem at site and establish practices that will ensure the survival of these valuable ecosystems in the future, while the negative impact of invasive alien species is minimized,” was stated from the Center for Environment.
The existence of a large number of protected areas along the Sava River tells a lot about its natural resources, richness of its coastal and floodplain area. Even 64% of the flow is protected by different protection categories which classifies it as hotspots of European biodiversity.

SAVA TIES - 1ST REGIONAL WORKSHOP AND 3RD STEERING COMMITTEE HELD IN SREMSKA MITROVICA
(19-03-2019)

Lonjsko polje

Members of Sava Parks Network gathered on 12 March 2019 in The Special Nature Reserve of Zasavica (Sremska Mitrovica) for the regional workshop within the framework of Sava TIES project. Workshop goal was to find an efficient solution for permanent removal and eradication of invasive alien plant species, which not only present a nature protection problem, but also have a negative effect on human health and cause severe economic losses.
On behalf of the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River Momir Paunović, from the Institute for Biological Research "Siniša Stanković", emphasised the problem of invasive species and commended the Sava TIES project initiative and its efforts to solve this problem in the Sava River basin. He presented the mobile application which enables citizens to contribute to the fight against invasive species, by sharing information on 37 invasive species of European significance.
As emphasised by Slobodan Simić, the Director of Special Nature Reserve of Zasavica “Invasive species negatively impact protected nature areas as they suppress and endanger natural domestic vegetation and thus reduce biodiversity. One of Special Nature Reserve of Zasavica’s problems is an invasive alien species “Common milkweed”, which will be removed from the 30 ha surface of the reserve during this project”.
Invasive alien species are plants, animals and other organisms that are non-native to an eco-system, but are primarily human-induced. They are spreading uncontrollably in the River Sava basin, eliminating domestic species, having the negative effect on other native species, destroying soil fertility and reducing the area of arable land, causing major problems in flood control and much more. In short – they change important European natural habitats and are very difficult to eradicate. It is estimated that the damage IASs have on the global economy amounts to USD 1,4 billion, or 5% value of global economy. 
Project „Preserving Sava River Basin Habitats through Transnational Management of Invasive Alien Species – Sava TIES“ is co-funded through ERDF and IPA funds of the European Union, and it will be implemented during three years in four countries: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. Project partners are EuroNatur Foundation, Public Institution Ljubljansko barje Nature Park, Lonjsko Polje Nature Park Public Institution, Public Institution Green Ring, Public Company National Park “Una” LLC Bihać, Environmental Centre, Institute for Nature Conservation of Voivodina Province, Mountaineers association Sremska Mitrovica and Public Company Vojvodinašume. SAVA Ties project value is eur 1.604.137!

SAVA TIES - A NEW BIRD SPECIES FOR CROATIA – THE AFRICAN SACRED IBIS
(26-03-2019)

Lonjsko polje

INVASIVE ALIEN SPECIES OF UNION CONCERN

At the beginning of February 2019 for the first time in Croatia the African sacred ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus) was recorded in the area of Samobor in Celine Samoborske. It is easily recognized, due to its size, dark head, thick and downward curved beak and black legs. Its natural habitat is in sub-Saharan Africa and Iraq and it was formerly found in Egypt, where it was considered a sacred bird. It is a very social bird that forms colonies and can live in communities that comprise 200 birds and more. In its natural habitat, its diet consists of mainly insects, crustaceans, molluscs, fish, frogs and small mammals. It is not picky about its diet and therefore easily adapts to new habitats.
It has not been known in Europe until mid-20th century and has begun to establish colonies only recently. Birds kept in captivity broke free, escaped into wilderness and started breeding independently. According to available data, it has been seen in Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal and Spain. It can present a threat for native species as it feeds on eggs of other birds (e.g. eggs of heron and tern); is competitive and displaces other species; and can even feed on small water birds. Due to all these characteristics it was added to the list of Invasive Alien Species of Union concern (the Union list).

SAVA TIES - PROJECT "SAVA PARKS II - FREEDOM FOR SAVA" KICK-OFF EVENT
(19th to 21st of February 2019)

pplp

The SavaParks network members met from the 19th to 21st of February in Slavonski Brod, Croatia. The meeting was attended by Sava TIES project partners and other SavaParks members. A new SavaParks project Sava Parks II - Freedom for Sava was presented. The SavaParks network is a network of protected areas along the Sava Rivers and includes 23 organizations dealing with nature protection in the four countries of the Sava River Basin.

The aim of the three year project is to strengthen the SavaParks network and to foster the restoration of the Sava River and its floodplains. In some parts, the river has been altered by human activities and returning to natural state would mean the return of valuable habitats and better flood protection, as well as a lower risk of loss of drinking water sources. The Sava River is extremely valuable for all the riparian countries and it is well preserved in relation to the rivers of Western Europe. Water reservoirs of large cities along the Sava River depend on the quantity and quality of water that the Sava River delivers. Thanks to good preservation, in the river and along the Sava River we find many rare and endangered species and habitats. Along the Sava, there are spacious fertility areas for food and large flooded oak forests, which are unique at the European level.

The Sava TIES project was presented to the participants and the synergies between the SavaParks II project and the Sava TIES project were discussed. The participants actively took part in workshop to work on a joint vision for the SavaParks network.

The meeting concluded with a visit of two protected areas in Brodsko-Posavska County in the floodplains of the Sava River. First they visited the Ornithological Reserve Bar Dvorin and the important landscape of Gajno as examples of good practices and preserved habitats. The second stop was at the pastoral community of the Eko-Gajna Defense Cooperative, who showed the importance of traditional cattle breeding in maintaining naturally valuable habitats.

SAVA TIES - PILOT ACTIVITIES PLANNING

pplp

Considering the fact that invasive alien species (hereinafter: IAS) are among the two biggest global threats to biodiversity, posing as a huge ecological, economical and health threat, a special attention within DTP Sava TIES project is being paid to the management options of the most invasive plants in Sava River basin. 

In accordance to DTP Sava TIES work plan, effectiveness and costs of different methods in IAS eradication are to be tested on the most invasive vascular plants in the region. Project consortium has defined 7 pilot areas in 4 countries to be test-plots for the eradication. The sample plots are located in areas of conservation interest being threatened: Nature Park Ljubljansko Barje (Slovenia), Protected Landscape Odransko polje (Croatia), Nature Park Lonjsko Polje (Croatia), National Park Una (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Tišina (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Special Nature Reserve Zasavica (Serbia) and Special Nature Reserve Obedska Bara (Serbia).

In period from 14 to18 September leading partner of the project work package 5 Pilot Implementation - Institute for nature Conservation of Vojvodina Province (Serbia), together with the sites’ managers visited all 7 sites to develop Pilot Implementation Plans.
Having essential local knowledge of species which are posing the biggest ecological and economic threat, site managers have proposed at least two sample plots with invasive plants which are going to be mapped and eradicated, while habitat revitalisation will be monitored for two years. Both biophysical and economical parameters are going to be monitored for evaluation of the pilot measures’ effectivness. 

For the purpose of comparative reporting results on costs and biophysical effectiveness of the pilot measures, a Template for Pilot implementation planning was developed. Following the scheme, tools, equipment, staff, labour and efficiency indicators will provide information useful for further larger scale IAS management activities in SRB.

Results which are going to be presented in the Joint implementation report will be used as input for policy improvement guidelines, stakeholder trainings and presented to key decision makers.
