Located 12 klm. north of Halkida, the Kolovrechtis Wetlands should be famed for the natural utopia it provides to hundreds of different plant and animal species. Unfortunately, over the past few decades, industrial pollution has all but turned this beautiful landscape into a chemical wasteland. Despite the fact that it provides shelter to 49 endangered bird species and numerous other amphibians and unique flora, little has been done to stop the pollution to one of Evia’s most valuable biotopes. Supposedly protected by Presidential Decree, evidence of such is sadly, hard to see.
