CULTURAL AND SCIENTIFIC GATHERING IN KLANA – THE 21ST DAYS OF DR MATKO LAGINJA
Marko Modrić and Marko Randić, representatives of Public Institution “Priroda” participated in the 21st Days of Dr Matko Laginja, held annually in the Municipality of Klana. At the gathering they spoke of the natural assets of grasslands of narrow-leaved moor grass and purple moor grass in the territory of Pleševica and Mlaka, in the Makovci region and in the broader area of Obruč Mountain. Focus was placed on the need of providing protection to these types of grassland. In their presentation “Recent Research of Natural Assets in the Klana Region” they also described the methodology and results of monitoring carnivores using automatic camera traps, with special reference to the “Suho” wolf pack. The head of the Natural History Museum of Rijeka, Željka Modrić-Surina, PhD, reported on the preliminary results of monitoring at Trstenik Mire (which has become a part of the European ecological network NATURA 2000) in her presentation “Active Protection and Monitoring of the Condition of Trstenik Mire”. For several years now, PI “Priroda” has also been involved in monitoring the condition of the mire.
