The Special Nature Reserve Zasavica is located west of Belgrade, along the Sava River, and covers 671 ha. This is one of the reserves with a very strong management system and in the last eight years it organised very successful international voluntary projects. Surrounded by the fragments of marshes, hygrophilous forests and meadows, the river ecosystem dominates the area. It is characterised by the presence of rare and endemic species of animals, being endangered not only in Serbia but also in Europe, such as the fish Umbra krameri and others. However, scientists discovered that a number of invasive alien species spread on account of native species. This condition made us realise the need for clearing the Reserve from the introduced species. Work: The volunteers will clean the Reserve Zasavica from invasive alien species that adversely affect the habitats they invade economically, environmentally or ecologically. This area offers educational and recreational possibilities, including bird watching (with a short course), sport fishing, camping and hiking.
Zasavica (www.zasavica.org.rs) is located one hour by bus from Belgrade.
Number of Places:
In a house inside the Reserve, with several bedrooms. Meals will be provided.
