| Danube Delta: the place to be for nature and animals photographers

The universal value of the reserve was recognized by the Man and Biosphere (MAB) Programme of UNESCO in 1990, through its inclusion in the international network of biosphere reserves.

Danube Delta is the only Delta in the world entirely declared as Biosphere Reserve. This photographers paradise it’s a living museum of biodiversity with 30 types of ecosystems, one of the biggest wetlands in the world, habitat of the waterfowl , the biggest area of compact reed beds on the planet.

| Species that you can take pictures of on the             Danube Delta team has a difficult mission to name all the species.

The mosaic of habitats developed in the Danube Delta is the most various in Romania, hosting a great variety of communities of plants and animals that counts around 5,429 types.

The Bern Convention protects an important number of birds (313 out of the 331 species), mammals (22 protected species and 7 strictly protected species) and fish (22 protected species).

Other species:
> mollusks (91 species)
> insects (2 244 species)
> fishes (135 species)
> amphibians (10 species)
> reptiles (11 species)
> mammals (42 species)
> birds (331 species) –  60% of wold population of Pygmy Cormorant ( Phalacocrorax pygmeus) and 50% of paleartic population of White Pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus)

Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve is a natural gene bank with inestimable value for the world's natural heritage.
So you can easily photograph in here the white pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus), the Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus) and the pygmy cormorant (60% from total world population) (Phalacrocorax pygmeus).

There are also important colonies of spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia) and several nesting species of white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla). The Danube Delta area is a major halting place (during spring and autumn) for millions of birds, especially ducks, white storks (Ciconia ciconia) and numerous predators. During winter, the Danube Delta hosts huge groups of swans and geese, including almost the entire world population of red-breasted goose (Branta ruficollis).

| Photograph those beautiful birds without being     seen

You can get closer and take pictures of these birds without being seen or scaring them with a unique local special build system.

It’s about a barrel lunched near the birds’ colonies that permits to take great pictures.

This technique is precise because the birds aren’t afraid by noises (engine sound).
