Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


Klingavälsån is situated in southern part of Skåne. The river is 30 km long and the catchment area is 240 km2. The river meanders through the bottom of the valley, and the river is surrounded by fertile land wich floods in winter and spring. This lush and diverse landscape, streches from Kävlingeån Rivet to Lake Sövdesjön, is part of the LIFEscape conservation project in wich municipalities of Lund ans Sjöbo participate. The cetral area is protected as Natura 2000 area. Also the wetland area has international significance and is one of Skånes five Ramsar -convension wetlands. The water fauna is remarkably rich and provides a habitat for many vulnerable species for example for the the thick shelled river mussel, Unio Crassus, and trout (Salmo trutta). The flooding areas also provide a profound significance for birds.
