This is at the same time a place where ecosystems of great importance are located with unique biotopes with many indigenous species. At the same time, this area supports and affects the coastal and marine ecosystems of the Adriatic Sea, through streams of groundwater.
Participants will have the opportunity to hear about the importance of the Drim Basin, or Skadar Lake, through the presentation of experts from this field within the framework of the round table as well as the camp that will be organized on Skadar Lake. Theoretical and field presentations on the biodiversity of the Skadar Lake will be held, followed by invasive species, reptiles and birds that are specific to this area. The hydrology of the Bojana river and its specificities will also be discussed. A very important segment of this camp will be the lectures of Bushcraft Montenegro on nature, navigation, food gathering, ancient ways of burning fire and making shelter in nature.
