Our project is based on evaluation and promotion of endangered and vulnerable plant species of Vrbas canyon. Primary focus is on eighteen plant species from IUCN Red list. Endangered plant species are: Eranthis hiemalis (L.) Salisb. Moehringia bavarica A. Kern (M. malyi Hayek) and Ruscus hypoglossum L. Vulnerable plant species are: Adianthum capillus-veneris L., Dianthus giganteus dUrv. subsp. Croaticus (Borbás) Tutin, Cardamine kitaibelii Becherer, Ilex aquifolium L., Seseli bosnense K. Maly, Cyclamen purpurascens Miller, Lilium martagon L., Erythronium dens canis L., Ruscus aculeatus L., Convallaria majalis L., Galanthus nivalis L., Narcissus poeticus L. subsp. radiiflorus (Salisb.)Baker, Orchis purpurea Huds, Orchis simia Lam. and Anacamptis pyramidalis (L.) Rich.
We have chosen Vrbas canyon because it is refugial habitat and also very popular rafting zone. Our project includes: fieldwork research, educations in schools and faculty, promotions in rafting clubs, cooperation with local community and tourists.
Through education of students and pupils we aim to raise awareness within young generations regarding the importance of plant protection and conservation. We believe that this project will improve the environmental knowledge of the local community.
