We owe more to the water than ever before. From our rivers’ bed we draw life, on their shores we find endless peace. Water provides security when a hand wash can be more important than anything, and also joyful minutes when we dive in the waves. From rivers and floodplains teeming birds with fish to food and drinking water that gets on our table, water affects every little moment of life. And now it's time to thank water for all this... but instead of words, by paying more attention to it. Because it gives us everything. Yet our rivers and the wetlands surrouding them had never been so endangered. Join WWF on a special journey and discover the wetlands surrounding the River Danube like never before!

In the last 150 years, 80% of the floodplains of the Danube and its tributaries have been lost. Together, however, we can improve this situation! Stay with us and explore the Danube and the world of surrounding floodplains, marshes and backwaters on an interactive journey using Google Earth!

That's how we help
Since 2014, together with the water and nature protection institutions, as well as our local partners, we have started the restoration of the river sections and floodplains along the Danube on several important areas. After the implementation of the projects, our goal is to increase the river capacity by the equivalent of 4,800 Olympic sized swimming pools and to restore over 7,422 football pitches worth of wetland habitat.
