Threats

The last decades, the pressure on the biodiversity increased enormously. In the beginning of the 20th century the agriculture intensified in several parts of Slovenia, while in other parts the land was abandonded. When Slovenia entered the EU, the biodiversity loss went even faster by increasing urbanisation, infrastructure, water canalisation, pollution, and building of power plants. Another threat is the increase of invasive alien species, which are intentionally or unintentionally released in the wild.
