WORLD WATER DAY 2022 GROUNDWATER - MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE

Groundwater is invisible, but its impact is visible everywhere. Out of sight, under our feet, groundwater is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives. Almost all of the liquid freshwater in the world is groundwater. As climate change gets worse, groundwater will become more and more critical. We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource. Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind.

   Boatin Reserve was originally designated on June 12, 1948. With an area of 1,597.2 hectares, it is situated within the village of Divchovoto’s lands, north of Tetevenska Baba Peak, and lies at altitudes between 800 and 1,750 meters above sea level. A small river, the Boatinska, crosses the Reserve; it merges further downstream with two other streams, the Sredna and the Momina, to produce the river Cherni Vit.

     The reserve is included in the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Program. Beeches abound in Boatin Reserve. These 200 year old trees, some over 50 meters tall, are among the largest protected all beech massifs in Europe. About 600 higher flora species are also represented here. The only concentration of dwarf pine in the Central Balkan Range is in the Reserve’s vicinity.

 

       Mammals typically found in the temperate zone have homes in the Boatin Reserve: brown bears, wolves, foxes, wild cats, martens, weasels, red deer, roe, and wild boar. In the not-so-distant past, lynx resided in the Reserve. In addition, there are 64 species of nesting birds, among them the Urals owls, Tengmaum’s owls, red-breasted and semi-collared flycatchers, southern white-backed and black woodpeckers, and peregrine falcons.
