Postcards from Romania
The Danube Delta
The Danube Delta is protected under the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Authority, set up in response to the ecological disaster that befell the delta during Ceausescu's attempt to transform it into an agricultural region. In mid-1980's the intensive use of fertilizers a long way upstream increased the level of nitrogen and phosphates in the Delta, causing a drop in fish stocks.
