Transcript

  • 1. Danube Delta
  • 2. The delta of the Danube River represents one of the last natural paradises in Europe, a network of channels, lakes, and lushly vegetated forests. It is home to a fascinating mix of cultures and peoples—and a huge diversity of birds, presided over by the greatest of them all, the pelican.
  • 3.
    • Occupying some 5800 sq.km, the Danube Delta is the second largest in Europe, after the Volga Delta. It was formed approximately 12,000 years ago at the point where the Danube flows into the Black Sea. The Danube arises in the German Black Forest and flows across 10 countries, a distance of 2,860 km. It flows into the Black Sea as three main branches: the Chilia, Sulina, and Sf.Gheorghe (Saint George).
  • 4. The quintessential Danube Delta bird is the pelican, represented by both European species: the Dalmatian Pelican(Pelecanus crispus) and the White Pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus).

  • 35. Fish are also richly represented in the Danube Delta. The main species are carp (Cyprinus carpio), catfish(Silurus glanis), pike (Esox lucius), sander (Stizostedion lucioperca), and sturgeons. As a curiosity, the smallest fish recorded in the Danube is a chub no longer than 3.2 cm. Also, the biggest pike ever captured weighed 18 kg and was over 1 meter long; the largest catfish weigh nearly 400 kg!
