The new animation of MedINA for Aoos river was created by Wood Gear Animation and is now live on YouTube!
The star is a purple plane tree leaf which travels all the way from Greece, where the river springs, to Albania, where it discharges. It flows through gorges, forests, plains, bridges, villages, and cities and meets bears, wolves, people, dragonflies, Egyptian vultures and woodpeckers, trouts, eels, otters, roe deers, wild boars, Balkan chamois and foxes! Aoos/Vjosa belongs to the Blue Heart of Europe and it is considered one of the last free-flowing rivers in Europe, since except for its hydroelectric dam at its springs, it flows for almost 270km without any artificial obstacles.
