Traditional fish and vine fiesta “Siruni” will be held in Saturday.
The fiesta, which is held for the 41st time, is being made in the collaboration with KSR “Sirun” which is the organizer, and NGO “Delfin” (Dolphin), while the benefactor beside the municipality, and TO is also the HTE (hotel tourist enterprise) “Budva Riviera”. For the tourist organization TO has singled out 5.000 euros, municipality 3.000, and we expect that they will manage to collect 2.500 more. On 5 checkpoints around the Old town 1.200 kg of fish will be served, 800 l of vine, and 700 l of beer – said the coordinator of the manifestation in TO Aleksandar Jovanovic.
The fiesta starts in 17h with a defile of music and majorettes, and we have also prepared a rich culturally – entertaining sports program.
Law should protect dolphins
Kotor – Kotor Association for protection of animals and the environment has demanded to pass a law for protection of dolphins in the Adriatic Sea, in the area of Montenegro.
This initiative, on the celebration of the World day for protection of animals was directed to the Bureau for protection of nature, to the Institute for sea biology and to the Ministry for protection of environment.
In the NGO they remind that in Montenegro the protection of floral and animal word is regulated by laws, but is a question how good those laws are.
In those laws something very significant is missing – the protection of dolphins, as perfect mammals, friends of humans, children, sailors and inhabitants of our part of the Adriatic Sea – said the President of the Kotor association Nevres DJeric, pointing out that “dolphins were killed by men”.
He appealed to the authorities to consider the initiative, which, it is said has to be considered as public interest of Montenegro as an ecological state and tourist destination.
We think that our several year initiative can do no harm to anyone, on the contrary, it can make our country the most attractive one for the tourists and at the same time it can reduce illegal fishing and hunting – said Djeric, by pointing out that the conventions of the EU have to be accepted and applied, “if indeed we wish to be members in that organization”.
