Other Site Characteristics

The SCI has to main core areas – the first is Oranovski Gorge on small part of Struma River and the other is the top of the mountain range at the Macedonian border – both linked by the river valley of Stara Reka.

4.2 Quality and importance

The SCI is the only suitable direct bio-corridor for bear migration between Rila mountain and the mountains situated west of Struma river. The zone is important for conservation of both species of land tortoises, as a stepping stones bio-corridor and for achieving necessary coverage in the network. In the SCI are found the highest localities of tortoises in middle part of Bulgaria (around 1000 masl) in various habitats: grasslands on the border of oak forests (ecotone between 91M0 and 6210) and dry pine forests with shrubs of junipers (9530 and 5210).
