Association for Biological Research – BIOM in cooperation with the Tourist Association of the city of Nin and Salt Pans Nin would like to invite you to our celebration of International Birdwatching Day and 2010 – International Year of Biodiversity.

Our aim is to promote the extraordinary value of salt pans. Salt Pans are an important wetland habitat with great diversity of birds. The Nin Salt Pans are one of a few wetland habitats at the Croatian coast. Tidal areas in the Mediterranean are globally endangered habitats and are critically endangered in Croatia. These areas are home to a lot of plant species and invertebrates. Some birds are dependant on these areas as they feed there.

Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a pair of binoculars if you own one.
