Wetlands are among the world’s most threatened ecosystems and this one has been gravely degraded, the most important problem being the overgrowing and disappearance of wet meadows. This year it will be full 23 years Young Researchers of Serbia organises the workcamp and the results are wonderful - so far because of our activities several bird species have returned and the working site has the richest bird fauna in the reserve.

Lage und Freizeit

Kupinovo is 50 km south-west of Belgrade in the Srem Region. It is well known by the famous special protected area “Obedska bara”, the oldest protected area in Europe. There are some very important cultural and historical monuments in this area which will be shown to the volunteers during leisure time.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Srem Region has been permanently inhabited since the early Stone Age with many clear signs of life just below the ground surface. Thanks to those signs we are able to see activities, ways of life even the way of thinking of the inhabitants of past time. The overall excavations of all historical layers show that this part of the region has an extraordinary rich cultural background. The locality “Ethno house” in Kupinovo village should provide evidence on communities living here since the Iron Age. Many of the localities are endangered due to agriculture or construction, especially in industrial zones, but not this one. The first excavations started seven years ago and after four workcamps the results were very positive.

This is a perfect workcamp for students of archaeology/history or anyone especially interested in archaeology and history.
