Two working groups from Montenegro and Albania got together and joined forces to protect the biodiversity and wildlife at Shkodra Lake.
After an expedition at the Prespa Lake, senior officials from the Albanian Ornithological Society assert that the shared input on how to improve the management and the preservation of the flora and the fauna will also serve to apply that knowledge at the Shkodra Lake.
The meeting also highlighted also many problems that they have encountered on both sides of the lake which lies on the border of Albania and Montenegro.
The director of the Shkodra Lake National Park in Montenegro, Aleksandar Bulatovic told Euronews Albania that they share many similar problems on the other side of the border.
“We also do have problems with the control and the protection of the Shkodra Lake. More specifically illegal fishing and other illicit activities. For this reason, we want to increase cooperation levels with a special emphasis on law enforcement agencies. We, as an institution, are on duty to improve the situation on a daily basis”, declared Bulatovic.
The launch of the Shkodra-Zogaj-Skije-Vir Pazar has also been at the center of attention.
