Resumen

Ibisha Island. 24/09/02. Montana; 3,365 ha; 43°49'40''N 023°31'00''E; Important Bird Area, CORINE, Natura 2000 (SPA, SAC). A complex of small islands on the River Danube along the country’s northern boundary with Romania, the Site has been extended by 2,993 ha to include additional islands and an area with agricultural and semi-natural lands. It is of international importance for the conservation of mammals, amphibians and threatened species of waterbirds such as the pygmy cormorant Phalacrocorax pygmeus, lesser white-fronted goose Anser erythropus, red-breasted goose Branta ruficollis and the Dalmatian pelican Pelecanus crispus. Ibisha Island itself is covered with seasonally flooded riverine forest of Alnus spp., Salix spp. and Populus spp. The Site plays an important role in regulating floods and trapping sediment. Human uses include forestry, fishing, agriculture and research. Intensive forestry activities disturb the birds during the breeding season. Additionally, the use of non-native species in forestry activities has resulted in the disappearance of natural floodplain forest on the river banks. A management plan was being developed in 2014. Ramsar Site no. 1227. Most recent RIS information: 2014.
