What is hiding in the north part of Zagreb county?

This week we were with Luka Basrek from Public Institution „Green Ring" and we visited a very interesting wetland, bogs Dubravica. It is located in the northwestern part of Zagreb County, and it was proclaimed a Special Botanical Reserve in 1966. The most interesting plant in Dubravica is the round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia). This plant feeds on insects which are attracted to the drops of mucilage, loaded with a sugary substance, covering its leaves. It has evolved this carnivorous behaviour in response to its habitat, which is poor in nutrients. Next to Dubravica is a beautiful forest stream. We recorded seven species of dragonflies and one Natura 2000 species, yellow-bellied toad (Bombina variegata).
We hope to continue co-operation with the Public Institution and soon return to this idyllic place to survey biodiversity and give additional value to this area.
