When speaking to Alexandra about the rewilding of the Danube Delta region in her home country of Romania, it soon becomes clear that, to her, this is more than just an ecological debate. It is a grand vision of a more positive, collaborative, and mutually beneficial relationship between a land and its people. Instilling a sense of pride and ownership among those who rely on the Delta’s natural resources is Alexandra’s mission – and her biggest challenge.

During my pre-mission research I realised that the chance of meeting a sturgeon in the delta was close to zero. Unfortunately. So I took the chance to dive with the sturgeons at the Danube Delta Eco-Tourism Museum Centre in Tulcea before setting out in the delta. They have a special sturgeon aquarium including the largest and most sought-after species of them all, the great beluga.

January 20, 2014  |  Blog

After thousands of dives all across the globe – still, when I entered the Danube River Delta it was like a whole new world opened up for me. To be honest, it blew me away. The high variety of environments and habitats, all in various stages of the process of consolidation, an underwater flora creating dream-like landscapes I’d never seen before, abundance of fish life and some underwater creatures looking more like they came straight from a space cartoon for kids.
