The Blue Heart of Europe

Precious watercourses across Europe ere being destroyed forever. Today, the stunning 270km stretch of Albania’s Vjosa River remains untamed, free-flowing and untouched by man. It is home to thousands of endemic species and communities that rely on it in its current state along its banks.

The biggest threat for this River is hydropower. While the Vjosa serves as border for many protected areas (3 of which are designated as National Park, IUCN category II), the river itself is without a special protection status, resulting in growing pressure from human impact.

Actually international banks are funding the construction of 37 hydropower projects in the proceed areas.
