Improvement of Daugavpils Wetland Territory was Carried Out Within the Project

05 July 2022

The project addresses management of natural and semi-natural ecosystems of urban wetlands in two neighboring cross border areas – Daugavpils (Latvia) and Anyksciai (Lithuania).

Pond improvement works were implemented in the territory of the Esplanade to enhance the green infrastructure of Daugavpils urban wetland – mowing of trees and shrubs, thinning of shrubs, creation of an open water system and pond system. Latgale Zoo territory was improved by following – arranged sidewalks, driveways and footpaths, landscaped lawn, planted trees and shrubs. To manage the flow of visitors and to reduce disturbance of the nature in the territory benches, rubbish bins and bicycle stand were installed. A video surveillance system has been established, as well as a visitor counter to monitor the amount of people entering the wetlands’ area and to prevent it from over-visiting that can be harmful for urban wetland’s ecosystem, thus helping to keep the natural balance of the ecosystem.

The works on restoration of green infrastructure and improvement of ecosystems services of Aniksciai Green pond area are continuing.

Total ERDF project funding 319 719,36 EUR.
