LIFE murerleben I and II
Under the auspices of the Natura 2000 pan-European programme for the protection of both habitat and species, numerous habitats for animal and plant species along the upper River were placed under protection. By means of the EU funding instrument called LIFE for the protection of the environment and nature, between 2003 and 2007 and in the zone from Murau to Knittelfeld, 11 measures were implemented with a view to maintaining or restoring natural habitats along the River Mur. This was succeeded in a second project from 2010 till 2016 involving an additional 7 measures. A total of around five million euros was invested, with 50 % of this project budget funded by the EU.
A large number of institutions, authorities, municipalities, owners of fishing rights and land joined forces over a period of years in order to make this project possible and to implement it.
