The project, “Preservation of alluvial forest habitats in the Morávka river basin“, is implemented by the Moravian-Silesian Region in cooperation with partners. It is financially supported by the European Union by the LIFE-Nature program.

The main aim of the project is to preserve alluvial forest habitats in the Morávka river basin, a very valuable area both from the biological and geomorphological point of view presently threatened by invasive Reynoutria spp.

The aim of the project is to be achieved via four component goals:
• creation of an efficient methodology of invasive species suppression and subsequent revitalization of the affected habitats,

• suppression of invasive Reynoutria spp. in the proposed Sites of Community Importance (pSCI), Niva Morávky and Beskydy,

• creation of an efficient model of cooperation during the process of problem solving in the field of environmental protection among the interested subjects on the regional level,

• spreading of the project results and providing further information on Natura 2000 and environmental protection.
