A new feasibility study about Saker Falcon reintroduction in Bulgaria has recently been published as announced by Dimitar Ragyov on the mailing list of the European Falco cherrug Conservation Taskforce.

The purposes of the study are:

  • to make an assessment of whether or not reintroduction is a suitable and feasible conservation management option for restoring the Saker Falcon as a breeding bird in Bulgaria
  • to outline the strategies of a potential reintroduction, following the best practices in similar conservation projects and the IUCN criteria for reintroductions
  • to serve as a tool in preparation and implementation of any Saker reintroduction projects and other conservation activities

The authors of the study will appreciate every comment on the document and the idea for reintroduction.
