Border areas in the western Balkans are retreat areas for an outstanding variety of plant species and for populations of rare large carnivores. Transboundary conservation efforts are key for preserving the ecological integrity of high mountain ranges, wetlands and water bodies along the borders. Continuing political tensions in some parts of the region count among the many challenges facing crossborder cooperation; others include the lack of funding and political awareness for declaring further transboundary protected areas.
