For the past eight months, river activists from around the world demanded a Vjosa National Park Now. There have been 23 visual actions across 13 countries in the middle of cities, national parks, in front of national monuments or in special natural places.
If the Vjosa and her tributaries were made a national park, it would permanently protect it from dams and nearby oil exploration among other things. Estimates are that a Vjosa National Park would attract 1.5 million visitors each year, generate about 20 million Euros in income every year, and create 6 jobs in local communities for every one job in the national park.
Thanks to all the organizations’ efforts, we are that much closer to creating Europe’s first Wild River National Park. Help us by spreading the message and sign the petition to add your voice to make #VjosaNationalParkNow
