The article presents the evolution of the ecological renaturation process of the Danube riverbed on the territory of Tulcea county, namely the Zaghen Polder. The economic, geostrategic and biodiversity importance of the Danube valley has been written about since ancient times, and in 1910 the Roman researcher Grigore Antipa drew attention to the negative effects that the damming and draining of these wetlands for agricultural exploitation would have in the future. Following the historic floods on the Danube in 2006, this subject was reopened and as a result the Romanian legislators issued Decision no.1208 of 6 September 2006 approving the ecological and economic resizing programme in the Romanian sector of the Danube River Basin and its financing. The WWF International organisation, which campaigns for the implementation of the projects together with local decision-making institutions such as the ADDBR, provides important support in this process. A concrete example of the ecological restoration of a dammed area on the Danube is the Zaghen polder.
