Exhibition created by Srećko Leiner
Duration: from April 5, 2013, to November 15, 2013
About the exhibition: This is a visiting exhibition produced by the Croatian Natural History Museum. The object of the exhibition is to draw attention to the problem of the disappearance and degradation of wetland habitats and the correlated reduction of the rich and diverse population of wetland birds. Wetlands are important bird habitats that are used during mating, nesting and feeding. The birds also use wetlands as sources of food and water, for rest and refuge and for social interaction. In terms of number and richness of protected and endangered species related to wetland habitats and aquatic ecosystems, Croatia is in the lead in European terms, as shown by the richly presented wetland birds at the exhibition.
