Our first touch with Goran was, we must admit sadly, through his Facebook post. After checking his work, we were amazed not only by the number and quality of projects he was/is involved with, but also (ergo sadly) by the fact that we never heard of him before! We rushed to correct that mistake, and have immediatelly agreed to publish the ePix Calendar featuring his work!
Goran participated in numerous projects such as the UNDP project on the restoration of wetland habitats along the Drava River, on the proposed UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Drava-Mura project and on biological inventory along the Drava River under the guidance of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), RiverWatch. In 2008, inventories of birds and plants began. He has worked on several projects related to tourism and sustainable development along the Drava River - biking trails, educational paths, brochures, and later on the development of bird watching tourism. He works on the development of ecological tourism and bird watching tourism. He co-operated with the Tourist Board of Nin.
