Kolkheti National Park

Within the project “Green Tourism and Historical Heritage – a stepping stone for the development of the Black Sea Basin” (GreeTHis) representatives of NALAG organised the third site visit which took place in May 27th in the Kolkheti National Park located in Poti and Lanchkhuti Municipalities.

Kolkheti National Park –  the first natural site in Georgia, is nominated on the UNESCO World Heritage List, for its Colchic forests and wetland.  The Kolkheti Lowlands received international attention for the first time in 1996 when Georgia joined the Ramsar Convention – an intergovernmental treaty on wetlands of international importance, especially those that serve as habitats for waterfowl. Park is in the emerald network as well, which is ecological cooperation, created in order to make up special conservation interest. You will be astonished how many birds are migrating here, especially in late spring and early autumn.  Wetlands are an important resting and staging area for thousands of water birds migration between Northern Eurasia and Africa.
