Other Site Characteristics

Calcareous cliffs along the canyons of Rousenski Lom River valley and its tributaries in North-Eastern Bulgaria. Stony river canyon, covered with deciduous bushes, trees and grass.

4.2 Quality and importance

Calcareous cliffs along the canyons of Rousenski Lom River valley and its tributaries in North-Eastern Bulgaria. Stony river canyon, covered with deciduous bushes, trees and grass. The Lomovete Rivers take seventh place among all Bulgarian Danube tributaries by fish diversity. Very important for the existence of invertebrate fauna. Restoration of additional 30.8 ha of habitat type 9180 was done by project “Riparian Habitats in BG - Conservation and Restoration of 11 Natura 2000 Riparian and Wetland Habitats in 10 SCI's Bulgarian Forests”, LIFE08 NAT/BG/000281

5.3 Site designation (optional)

National Park since 1986. There is Action Plan for managing the territory of the Nature Park. Nature-Archeological Reserve. The site is not very affected and has excellent perspectives. Because of the availability of typical Moesian and Pontian-Pannonic habitats I recommend that the site is included in Natura 2000.

6.3 Conservation measures (optional)

Management plan for Rusenski Lom Nature Park, adopted in 2006. The expansion of Nature Park Rusenski Lom on the east close to the village of Pisanetz to the boundary with the reserve Beli Lom. Concentration of the gazing close to the settlments instead of doing it along the tributaries of the rivers. Annual mowing of the mesophile meadows along the flooded river terraces.
