The Balkan river systems is Europe’s true freshwater biodiversity hotspot. There are 69 fish species endemic to the area and over 40% of all Europe’s endangered freshwater mollusc species can be found in a Balkan river.
This paradise is under threat, these last great free flowing rivers of Europe will be lost in our lifetime unless we act.
Nearly 3000 new hydroschemes are planned for this area with 188 already in construction.
Every dam breaks a river’s connectivity, destroying its free flowing nature.
