ENVIRONMENTALISTS and nature lovers commemorated the first anniversary of the opening of the educational path through Bird Paradise in Iňačovce on August 1. Ján Uhrín of Slovenská Ornitologická Spoločnosť (SOS)/BirdLife Slovensko told the SITA newswire that this walking path shows visitors the importance of the marshlands of eastern Slovakia, which are unique in all of Europe.

The development of the path was one part of a project to protect the Senné and Medzibodrožie bird localities, which is supported by the European Commission’s LIFE programme. The project is being implemented by Slovakia’s State Nature Protection agency in cooperation with other partners, including SOS. Its aim is to restore the marshland habitat of these protected bird localities, to revitalise and create nesting sites and food biotopes, to purchase plots of land and to restrict application of extensive farming. This should secure good conditions for the survival of rare bird species and plants and their protection for future generations. An essential part of the project was making this locality accessible to the public .
