Canalisation

To avoid any flooding of the land, many river systems were canalised. All larger rivers like Sava, Drava and Mura are partly canalised. This has large effect on the flooding dependent flora and fauna. Slowly they will disappear.

In the cities also all streams are canalised with concrete walls around it to protect it for going out of their bedding. Although this seems to be disastreous, one canalised stream, called Gradascica, in Ljubljana is designated as a Natura 2000 site. This is because the stream contains an endangered species.
