Kolanjsko blato - Rogoza

As a special ornithological reserve, Kolanjsko Blato has been protected since 1988 and is one of the few remaining Mediterranean wetlands, formed during the Pleistocene period, 13,000 years ago. It covers an area of 172.21 ha and is home to 163 bird species, 66 of which are nesting birds. These include the great reed warbler, wild duck, little grebe, heron, wader, water rail, lark, tern, and common moorhen. This site also attracts ornithologists, amateur bird watchers, as well as those who want to enjoy untouched nature. The area is specific for its immediate vicinity to the sea and the beach on one side, and a view of pastures and Velebit on the other.
