PRESPA is a small hidden treasure in the Balkans. A cross-border national park between Greece, Albania and Macedonia that possesses an extraordinary biodiversity and ancient human settlements, all surrounded in a beautiful landscape between mountains. The impression you feel when you first visit it is that it is a remote place, lonely, lost, a wild place at the end of the world.

Skadar Lake is a transboundary wetland shared by Montenegro and Albania that hosts a small breeding colony of the endangered Dalmatian Pelican. This colony has struggled for decades due to the floods and human disturbance. A collaborative team of CEPF (Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund) grantees is working to restore the balance.
