Underground mirror

Springs and wells represent a window into the underground world, and their biodiversity tells us about the purity of underground water. In January, we spent a week in warm Dubrovnik, visited springs and wells in the wider city area, and collected fauna samples. To present the wonderful world of caves and pits, we held a lecture in the Dubrovnik libraries and a workshop for the Ivan Gundulić Elementary School students in Dubrovnik.
The field research took place as part of the activities of the project “Underground mirror – underground waters of the tourist pearl of the Adriatic”, which was co-financed within the framework of the Public call for co-financing projects of associations in the field of environmental and nature protection of interest to the City of Dubrovnik for 2022.
