A visit to The Special Nature Reserve Uvac

We had a unique opportunity to go on a study tour of the Special Nature Reserve Uvac. It is a protected natural area of the first category located in the south-west of Serbia, about 140km far from Čačak.
What left a tremendous impression on us was Uvac Canyon, lakes, numerous caves, and, most importantly, Griffon Vulture – one of the two vulture species that nest in Serbia.
“The variety of intact natural habitats and the presence of endemic, rare and endangered plant and animal species are of crucial importance for biodiversity conservation as well as the conservation of geomorphological  heterogeneity. The main attraction of the reserve is the colony of griffon vultures. Griffon Vulture is a vulture species of an impressive size and with a wingspan of up to 3m. Being a mighty flyer, it has been studied by scientists specialising in aeronautical engineering, the mechanics of its flight having been used in aircraft construction. Its role in the food web in this ecosystem is unique and irreplaceable – it feeds solely on dead animals, thereby preventing contagion and playing an important role in natural recycling.”
Thanks to the rangers who led us around this natural area of enormous importance, we were able to have a close encounter with griffon vultures. We also saw ‘Uroš the Weak’, the griffon vulture that was sent back to the reserve after having wandered around Europe for a long time. The former Polish ambassador was most kind and had an important role in the vulture’s return to Uvac.
Head teacher Mirko Lazović and school accountant Biljana Petković accompanied us and helped us greatly with all the activities.

Poseta Specijalnom rezervatu prirode Uvac

Imali smo neverovatnu priliku da idemo na studijsko putovanje u Specijalni rezervat prirode Uvac, zaštićeno prirodno dobro I kategorije. Nalazi se na oko 140 km od Čačka, u jugozapadnoj Srbiji.
Kanjon reke Uvac, Uvačka jezera,  brojne pećine, i za nas najznimljivije upoznavanje sa beloglavim supom,  jednom od dve preostale vrste lešinara koje se danas gnezde na području Srbije, ostavili su na nas snažan utisak.
„Raznolikost netaknutih staništa, prisustvo endemičnih, reliktnih i ugroženih biljnih i životinjskih vrsta, od posebnog su značaja za očuvanje biodiverziteta i geodiverziteta.
Najveću atrakciju rezervata predstavljaju beloglavi supovi. Beloglavi sup je vrsta orla lešinara,  impozantne veličine, raspona krila i do 3 metra, što ga čini moćnim letačem čiji let su istraživali i naučnici – aeronautičari i primenjivali pri konstrukciji letelica. Njegova uloga u lancu ishrane u ekosistemu je jedinstvena i nezamenljiva – isključiva hrana su mu uginule životinje, čime sprečava širenje zaraza i na taj način čini „prirodnu reciklažu”.
Zahvaljujući rendžerima koji su nas proveli kroz ovo prirodno dobro od izuzetnog značaja, omogućeno nam je da imamo bliski susret sa beloglavim supovima  i da upoznamo „Nejakog Uroša”,  beloglavog supa  koji je ljubaznošću bivšeg ambasadora Poljske, posle dugog lutanja po Evropi, vraćen u rezervat.
Sa nama su bili predstavnici  škole, Mirko Lazović, direktor i  Biljana Petković, ekonomista,  koji su nam svestrano pomagali pri realizaciji svih naših aktivnosti.
