The French salt pans at the mouth of the Loire river - a successful model for the conservation of traditional salt production
Human activity associated with the formation of small salt fields on the French Atlantic coast has contributed to the maintenance of many habitats and protected species of birds and plants. This is the case of the salt marshes in the Loire estuary region, also known as the Land of Salt, which has nearly 16 000 hectares of salt marshes.
Today is World Wetlands Day, the day the Ramsar Convention was signed to protect wetlands. They are fragile ecosystems that can easily be affected by human activities, such as drainage, development or the clearing of coastal forests, the construction of hydropower plants on rivers, etc.
On the old-style Atanasov Day - January 31, 2023, will be the much-awaited premiere of the film "Salty People". Unexpectedly for everyone it will be in Sofia, not in Burgas.
Since 2013 Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation organizes the celebration of Atanasov Day for Lake Atanasovsko with various events, including the 5th annual Atanasovsko Lake Half Marathon from the Sea Garden of Burgas to the border of the eponymous reserve.
On Atanasov Day we invite you to meet the birds of Lake Atanasovsko because the southern part of the lake is currently teeming with feathery birds and what better way to celebrate the holiday of the beloved lake than to get acquainted with its inhabitants? Come on Wednesday, January 18 2023, at 4 pm to the Bird Watching Hide on the shore of Lake Atanasovsko.
The Public Advisory Council discusses the conservation activities and hot issues in and around Lake Atanasovsko.
On 25 November (Friday) 2022, the third meeting of the Public Council for Lake Atanasovsko was held in the Chamber Hall of NHK Culture Centre on the topic "The restoration of Lake Atanasovsko - main challenges for biodiversity and salt production".
Three American students spent three months in Burgas, studying Atanasovsko lake. These include fieldwork, scientific studies of the Greater flamingo and some Waders, research of sea grasses and especially Ruppia maritima, study of salt marshes, monitoring of dragonflies in Lake Pomorie, etc.
