Smart Regions - Ramsar Biodiversity project: Helping to preserve biodiversity in the Rhine region
Given a decline in biodiversity in the French-German border region, the Ramsar project aims to protect six endangered species in the region.
These include the owl of Athena, the northern lapwing, the water rail, the common tern, Bechstein’s bat and the European tree frog. The Ramsar project is a great example of how cross- border cooperation can help to preserve biodiversity. Have a look at what the project is doing to protect endangered species!
