At over five million years old, Lake Prespa is amongst the most ancient freshwater lakes in the world.
The beautiful but environmentally vulnerable region of the Prespa Lake Basin is home to more than 2,000 species of fish, birds, mammals and plants. Many of these species are unique and many are in danger of dying out if their habitat is not protected.
