Surveys and field measures for nature conservation

Wetland restoration near the Prague City Circle Road

Saturday, August 31, 2013
NaturaServis Ltd. aimed at restoration of a wetland suitably linked to habitats located on the downstream, but at the same time allowing economic use of the rest of the area. The wetland restoration established a habitat used particularly by amphibians for their breeding, occurrence as well as for wintering. 


The wetland is used by many other wild animal, from invertebrates up to cloven-hoofed game. Land plots had been purchased from a private owner by the NATURA Land Trust. Consequently, activities aiming at a wetland restoration started. The area where the wetland was restored, has been monitored. In 2013, two years after restoring the wetland, few dozens of edible frogs, also known as common water frogs (Pelophylax kl. esculenta) as well as some other species belonging to the genus Pelophylax were found. The occurrence of the Common toad (Bufo bufo) and the Sand lizard (Lacerta agilis) has also been confirmed there. Thus, herpetofauna species range is being step by step restored. The fact reflects high effectiveness of nature conservation measures taken and confirms that the targets have been met.
