The Caves of Škocjan Regional park is to be developed into a much larger Karst regional park and five new parks would be established: Snežnik, Trnovski gozd, Kočevje-Kolpa, Pohorje and Karavanško-Kamniško-Savinjski Regional Park. These areas are charactersitic for the natural phenomena and patterns of sustainable land use.

Highlight – Wallcreeper - seen at the waterfall „Slap Savica“ (near Ukanc). There is a fence which stops you going closer to the waterfall. Behind the fence on the left and right of the waterfall, low down, on rock face, we had extremely good views of a female bird.

Birdlife in SloveniaWebsite
Wetlands important for birds in Slovenia include Secovlje salina at the coast, the Drava and the Mura rivers, with flooded woodlands in northeastern Slovenia, Ljubljansko barje (marshes) and Lake Cerknica in central part of the country. Some fishponds have become important sanctuaries for biodiversity in areas of modern intensive farming, especially in northeastern Slovenia. The Racki ribniki fishponds (protected as a Landscape Park with neighbour area) and Vrbje pond are important both for breeding as well as for migrating bird species (e.g. various ducks, herons, waders, grebes).
