The River Danube, its shorelines, oxbows, wetland forests and meadows form an interwoven corridor for a rich but endangered flora and fauna. Hydropower developments and river regulation have disrupted much of the original environment. Proposals are outlined for preserving the last two naturally-flowing stretches of the Austrian Danube and to improve the impoundment areas ecologically. Effective programmes of biotope management are considered briefly.
