Danube, the second longest river in Europe through a tortuous path in the Black Forest to the Black Sea. The river arises through union sources: Breg, Brigach, Donau Quelle and joins the sea by three branches: Chilia, Sulina and St. George forming the Danube Delta. As space crosses so large and diverse to establish the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River which aims to ensure the sustainable use and equitable access to water resources along the river basin, the Commission's work jumpers Danube River Protection Convention which is an important instrument for cooperation and transboundary water management in the Danube basin. Romania was in 2007 president of the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River. Romania is interested to protect the water of the river, given the length that it crosses the country and the fact that the arms of the Danube flows into the Black Sea forms one of the most rare and beautiful wetlands, named Danube Delta. It is appreciated that the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve has become as compared to other deltas of Europe and the Earth has retained a high biodiversity, that a multitude of species from a variety of systematic units. In the European continent, Delta retained natural habitat. This area has special significance both ornithological aspect and morphological and climatic factors have described it as a very important reserve. Nature reserves in the area of 41500 ha were delineated in three different biotypes of the delta and was placed in the international studies program "Man and Biosphere" attached to UNESCO to recognize the importance of Romanian scientific nature reserves and the richness and variety of flora and fauna elements.
