3494 Case study:The Babina Restoration Project Until the 20th century vast areas of the Danube Delta faced only minimal human impacts through extensive fishery and reed harvesting. Since then the Danube Delta has undergone multiple human impacts like embankment, channelization and drainage. Moreover, large areas were diked and the polders used for agriculture. The Babina polder (2.100 ha) was reconnected to the Danube in 1994 and recovery has been monitored by the Danube Delta National Institute for Research and Development. Within a few years a redevelopment of the site-specific biodiversity occurred and ecosystem services like nutrient retention and fish recruitment became obvious. Additionally, the reconnected polder enable reed harvesting, grazing, fishing and ecotourism. Babina Restoration Project, Romania
3495 Evolution of Babina polder after restoration works The Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve is an area where governmental decision makers, scientists and local communities co-operate to develop a pilot programme for the administration of the territory and the waters. The objective is to harmonize the requirements of the local populations with the necessity for conservation of natural processes and biological resources. Babina Restoration Project, Romania

3501 WETREST - Restoration of Wetlands at Zahorie Lowland The project aimed to restore the original water conditions at the eight project sites to enhance the quality of the river and adjacent habitats. It planned to do this by restoring river banks, installing five small weirs and filling in over a kilometre of drainage ditches. Wetland restoration in the Zahorie lowland, Slovakia

3503 Biodiversity GEF Project The annual cycle of flows in the Morava River and its tributaries was to be restored in three sites leading to restoration of the wetland biotic complexes and movements between fragments of habitat isolated by land use. The project restored 4 oxbows and over 19km of floodplain. Restoration of oxbows and floodplains on the Morava River, Slovakia

3508 RESTOREWETLANDS - Conservation, restoration and durable management in Small Island of Braila, Romania The aim of the project was to guarantee the long-term conservation of priority habitats and species of European importance in the entire area of the SIB Natural Park. This aim would be achieved through the implementation of conservation plans developed in close cooperation with all the interested stakeholders that were engaged during the previous LIFE project. A total area of about 2 949 ha of important habitats would be restored in different areas of the park. Conservation, restoration and durable management in Small Island of Braila, Romania

3515 Ecological Restoration of Mata-Radeanu Complex The Lower Prut Floodplain Natural Park is the entrance of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve. It lies on the flyway route of hundreds of migratory birds. The ecological importance of the park has been recognised at national as well as international levels.The project objective is to improve the conservation status of 13 priority and more than 50 non-priority bird species listed in the Birds Directive and present in the Lower Prut Floodplain Natural Park. A main aim is to resolve the environmental problems caused by human activities such as agriculture, pasturage, fishery and tourism in and around the Park. To deal with the degradation of hydrological structures, the project also aims to re-establish the ecological balance of the lakes, including improvement of the water level and its maintenance. The results of the project are linked by the designation of Mata – Radeanu Complex as Special Protected Area NATURA 2000 within The Lower Prut Floodplain Natural Park. Through the ecological restoration works at Mata – Radeanu Complex, the water level is maintained so the habitats are protected as in drought period so in the floods ones.

3517 Ecological restoration in Czech Republic The main objectives of the mire restoration programme were: (i)restoration of natural (or near-natural) mire hydrology; (ii) enhancement of peat-forming vegetation and processes, (iii) conservation of natural mire biodiversity; and (iv) involvement of the public into local mire conservation. Regarding hydrology, the aim of the restoration was to raise the water table to a natural (pre-drainage) level, decrease the /uctuations, and retain su1cient water in the mires especially during the driest periods.

3518 Restoration of Drained Mires (Å umava National Park, Czech Republic) About 70% of mires in the Šumava Mountains have been influenced by past drainage for variously forestry, agriculture and peat extraction. Since 1999, a comprehensive “Mire Restoration Programme” has been implemented in the Šumava National Park, primarily focused on the disturbed hydrology. The main restoration technique used has been the blocking of drainage ditches. Selected drained and intact mires were also monitored with the aim: (i) to characterise the degradation changes induced by the disturbed hydrology; and (ii) to evaluate the success of restoration. Water-table fluctuations, hydrochemistry of groundwater, surface-water outflow, amount of precipitation and the vegetation on permanent plots have been monitored. Pre-restoration monitoring data had shown differences between drained and intact sites. On drained bog sites, water tables were maintained at lower levels and exhibited higher fluctuations compared to intact sites. Expansion of the more competitive grasses and trees towards the bog expanse was recorded on drained bogs as well as expansion of dwarf shrub vegetation and reduction of Trichophorum lawns and hollow vegetation. Preliminary results from the initial post-restoration phase have shown a rise in the water table, stabilisation of the hydrological regime and some changes in hydrochemistry at restored sites.
