Continuing the work from the project supported by the 1st grant (No 24565-1), this project aims at bridging the gaps between people and nature as well as people between themselves. This project is putting in focus small protected areas of Serbia, dealing with issues in fresh-water conservation, monitoring of species and habitats and social and educational aspect implementation in proper conservation planning. Therein focusing on species of conservation concern, inhabiting those protected areas, present on the IUCN red list and protected by national and international legislation but dealing with negative anthropogenic alterations. The original movie series “Hidden corners of Serbia”, being recognized by the scientific community will continue to grow, changing public perceptions and helping towards conserving species and habitats.
