WELL OF LIFE – 7th JUNE, 2010

All over Žumberak – Samoborsko gorje Nature Park there are numerous springs and water pools for cattle as well for washing and bathing, but today they are mostly devastated. Their function in nature protection is very important – they ensure the existence of biological balance as well as biological and landscape diversity.
