The Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (DDBRA)

Delta Dunarii, judetul Tulcea (UNESCO)

Description

With Romania's adhesion to the Ramsar Convention in 1991, Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (DDBRA) was recognized as a wetland of international importance especially as waterfowl habitat. Taking into account the significance of the universal heritage of the Danube Delta, that is the biosphere reserve, it is found since 1990 in the list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage (more than half the area).

Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (DDBRA), within established limits, spreads over an area of 580,000 ha, including besides the Delta itself, Razim-Sinoe complex, the coastal marine waters untile the rough isobath of 20 m, the Danube meadow situated between Isaccea and Tulcea, Danube’s bed between Cotul Pisicii and Chilia Fortress until the territory of Ukraine. Inside the limits, the biosphere reserve is structured as follows: 18 strictly protected areas, with an area of 50,600 ha, economic areas (including settlements), buffer areas, with 223,000 ha and ecological reconstruction areas of 306,100 ha.

This reserve also includes Razim- Sinoe Complex and the touristic sites. The landscape of this region, together with the heliomarine potential of the beaches from Sfantu Gheorghe, Sulina and Gura Portitei, will be exploited for tourist purposes, even if it is an establishment of the biosphere. Thus, besides the major routes (Danube branches and some main canals), useful for the connection with the human settlements and for the economical exploitation of the natural ressources and of the forestry, fisheries and agriculture, there will be both recreational areas and tourist routes for excursions.

For the inhabitants of the Danube Delta, one of the fundamental conditions of existence has been and is still protecting the settlements in terms of floods. Also, another condition is represented by ensuring the necessary living, considering the resources the area provides and the ways to ensure the avoidance of isolation.

The first settlements of Russians- Lipoveni (representing the majority population in the region) were formed on Razim-Sinoe lagoon shore, the main activity here being the fishing, this settlements being at the same time protected from periodic water invasions in Dobrogea Plateau.

The city of Tulcea, (100,000 inhabitants), is the most important economic and social center of the region, being archaeologically attested on the Aegissus Geto-Dacian site since the VIII century B.C..

Since 1990, the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (DDBRA) is part of UNESCO World Heritage.
