This Saturday, Divjaka-Karavasta National Park turned into a festive arena that brought together dozens and hundreds of visitors from Kosovo and Albania. The theme of this day was the symbol bird of Divjaka-Karavasta National Park, the Dalmatian Pelican, giving so this day, 11th of May, the name “Dalmatian’s Pelican Day”.
The purpose of this celebrating activity was to raise awareness in a national level for the protection of the Divjaka-Karavasta NP and for the protection of the Dalmatian Pelican and in the same time to promote the development of a sustainable tourism and the diversity of the local and traditional products of Divjaka-Karavasta through a local fair.
Local businesses, farmers, artisans, local and central authorities, and other groups of interest joined this local fair, showcasing proudly their local agricultural, gastronomic and ethnographic products.
This activity was carried out within the framework of the “Let’s Make Divjaka Natural Again!” project, funded by Critical Ecosystems Partnership Fund (CEPF) and implemented by AOS in partnership with PSEDA-Iliria and Res Publica. For the realization of this activity AOS worked closely with RAPA-Fier, NAPA, Ministry of Tourism and Environment, Horizont EU and MEN.
