The area encompasses the middle strech of the Drava river (from Terezino polje to Donji Miholjac). The area comprises well-developed river habitats with sandbanks, sand-bars and islands and vertical, eroded, bare riverbanks, oxbow lakes and ponds. The river is surrounded by riverine forests and arable land with scattered pastures. Main threats are river canalization, water pollution, excessive or illegal hunting, agricultural intensification and intensified forest management.
