It is also strategically situated along the main Western Palearctic migratory flyway.

The project wants to tackle the numerous threats to the Lake Pape region in a strategic and coordinated way. A close partnership between the WWF and the two local municipalities of the region thereby creating a sustainable long term institutional framework for the management of the Lake Pape Nature Park.
