The Donau-Auen National Park is Lead-Partner. In this function, it coordinates the partner organisations with regard to the implementation of project activities and project monitoring. Furthermore, the Donau-Auen National Park is implementing the revitalisation of two sections of the Schwechat River together with the Schwechat Water Board. In addition, small-scale species protection measures to improve the habitat of kingfishers and dice snakes are implemented together with volunteers and schools.
In order to promote cross-border cooperation, the project partners meet regularly and conduct joint studies. The main focus here is on the preparation of catalogues of measures for the improvement of flowing waters and their surrounding areas.
Awareness raising and information are important elements of a project. With the help of information material, a travelling exhibition and excursions, interested parties, especially the local population, are given the opportunity to be directly involved in the implementation of the project.
