Birdlife International announced a new LIFE project for the Eastern Imperial Eagle in Hungary, Austria, Serbia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The project aims to reduce persecution, improve habitat and guard nests.
It is hoped to increase the current population of 220 pairs in those countries to 250 pairs by 2021.
A very important project for these amazing eagles. The measures, particularly reducing persecution, will also benefit other species like the White-tailed Eagle.
