Custody, problems, commitments

After a first analysis of the protected areas along the Mureş River which recently entered in the custody of the Milvus Group, we identified a whole series of problems. By far the worst is the one caused by garbage. The river banks, and as such the local protected areas, are used as public dumping sites, without any respect for the local natural patrimony. Garbage disposed upstream remains hanged on the branches after any significant changes in water levels.

There is no increase in viper numbers in 2017!

In Romania, the reptiles (thus the vipers too) hibernate in winter, so their annual activity period is from spring to autumn. But even during this period, the observations probability differs. Often snakes use common hibernacula, and that’s why in spring they may be crowded around the entry. These are the so called viper-nests people often speak about, and this is where you can observe spousal agglomerations as well. If one sees such a crowd (which is in fact a rarity), a misconception arises that the number of vipers increased!  Continue reading
