Due to the great variety of natural landscapes in Austria, nature
experience is a major issue. Particularly in sensitive areas such as
aquatic habitats, which are especially attractive to us, we need to
considerately treat the environment.
The aim of the project Water:Trails is to draw public attention to
the exceptionality of both bodies of water and habitats close to water
as well as to their flora and fauna. Additionally, the project wants to
encourage responsible leisure-time pursuits in these habitats. Until
2015, the focus is on one unit of habitats a year, having started with
glaciers, karst & mountain forests in 2011, followed by streams,
rivers & alluvial forests; lakes & littoral zones, and bogs
& swamp forests.
