With the coming of spring, an active struggle with the burners of the last year's grass begins; so, we emphasize that the burning of dry grass is prohibited and punishable. The burning of reeds and seaside grasslands in Daugavgriva Nature Park “Piejura” of 13th April is not related to burning of grass as a way of the territory management. This is the result of a bad management and vandalism, both in relation to nature and to people.

The Nature Conservation Agency points out that regular burning negatively affects soil fertility, with time both rare species and species characteristic to only natural grassland disappear and natural aesthetic value decreases. Frequent burnout of lawns contributes to the spread of invasive plant species. Combustion of organic substances results in arising of fertilizers, which are not necessary for natural lawns. Burning also harms people, as emissions and odours spread in the environment.

We inform that this week, within the LIFE Programme project LIFE CoHaBit (No LIFE15 NAT/LV/000900) “Coastal Habitat Conservation in the Nature Park “Piejura”” supported by the European Commission, works to limit the spread of invasive alien plants in the park are started to protect many rare seaside habitats. Works are carried out in Daugavgriva, in the park area near Lepju Street. This spring, bushes will be cut down on the territory and invasive alien plant species such as the Canada Goldenrod and Himalayan balsam will be excavated with roots.


On 21st and 22nd January colleagues from the Bulgarian LIFE Capacity Building Project visited the Capacity Building Project for implementation of the LIFE programme in Latvia (CAP LIFE LAT) to exchange experience in implementing projects as well as to get acquainted with other successful LIFE projects in Latvia.

On 21st February, at the premises of the Administration of Latvian Environmental Protection Fund (LVAFA), capacity projects shared their experience, exchanged advices and demonstrated the created video clips and other tools for public informing. In the second half of the day, both capacity projects were admitted to the hospitable premises of the Latvian Fund for Nature (LDF), where the most successful projects of the LDF were presented – both the just started ones and already completed ones. On 22nd February CAP LIFE LAT together with guests went to get to know two LIFE projects at their sites: the project “Birds in Adazi” (Proj. No LIFE12 NAT/LV/000509) in the territory of Adazi polygon and the project LIFE CoHaBit (Proj. No LIFE15 NAT/LV/000900) in the Nature Park “Piejura”, Lilaste.
