NATURAL AREAS AND ACTIVITIES

Ulcinj is rich in natural places ranging from beautiful stone bays, the long beach to the delta of Ada-Bojana and Ulcinj Salina. Due to these natural beauties Ulcinj became a known touristic spot welcoming thousands of tourists each season. However, the basis for this prosperous economic sector was and is threatened due to various negative impacts. Therefore, since 2016, Dr Martin Schneider-Jacoby Association (MSJA) has taken on the fight for these natural areas important for biodiversity, society and economy with various awareness-raising activities.

The activities range from excursions with school classes, concepting and producing a music video and a documentary made by locals to interactions with public decision-makers.
