How are we improving the living conditions of the Western capercaillie with the VrH Julijcev project? (In Slovenian language)

9. June, 19:30 - 21:00

Lecturer Mr. Andrej Arih from JZ TNP and Mr. Tomaž Mihelič from DOPPS will present the quiet areas in the National Park, established within the framework of the project VrH Julijcev, co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Slovenia.

Triglav National Park is one of the best preserved natural environments in Slovenia. The level of protection is high, with the protection regimes in place to ensure that our descendants will inherit the preserved nature of this 4% of the country’s territory. Yet sometimes this is not enough, especially with the increasing number of visitors to the National Park and the many different ways of spending time in nature. Some areas and species are particularly sensitive to human presence, and the establishment of quiet areas brings human disturbance down to an acceptable level. This is a long-established and well-established practice abroad. In quiet areas, visitation (hiking, mountaineering) and other disturbing activities (air traffic, touring, paragliding, paragliding, shooting, cycling, forestry, agriculture) are timed and spatially adjusted to minimise disturbance to nature. The management plan of the National Park currently identifies 138 quiet areas, and through the activities of the Julijci VrH project, the project partners are actually implementing 13 quiet areas in the area for wild cockerel, 4 for white-tailed ptarmigan and 3 for active raised bogs. They are being set up in the Pokljuka, Vitranec, Mangart saddle and Triglav area. Visitors will be provided with information on the rules introduced in each quiet area through online and printed resources, as well as directly in the wild through information and signposting boards.
