We will continue to restore abandoned or rapidly deteriorating habitats
In a large part of this territory (about 17,000 ha), the aim will be to ensure an adequate level of water regulation (when dry – water in the meadows when wet through water – pumped water). In Lithuania a great deal of attention is concentrated on the Nemunas delta, where the regulation of the water will be carried out. The water regulation will take into account both the protection of the shingles and the farmers (for example, favorable conditions for mowing meadows). Hydraulic equipment will be installed here and polder ducts will be cleaned. In Belarus, an innovative way of rebuilding habitats will be tested – sedimentation of livestock in exploited peatland. Other applicable habitat restoration measures are quite common in nature management – mainly the cultivation of reed and scrub grown. These works are already underway.
