This milestone publication presents the first thorough and detailed review of the conservation status of European birds. Based on detailed breeding and wintering population data collected in each country, the report provides a review of the population sizes and trends of Species of European Conservation Concern. The major threats to each species are discussed, with the basic measures that are needed to conserve them and their habitats.
`...should be compulsory reading for Europe's environment ministers. It certainly will be an essential reference book for anyone with a serious interest in European bird conservation.' David Tomlinson, New Scientist
Lake Skadar forms the international border between Albania and Montenegro, but is also a biodiversity-rich Balkan wetland harbouring the Dalmatian Pelican. CEPF is supporting 10 organisations to sustainably manage the lake for its pelicans, for conservation, and for the local people that live on its shores.
New scientific evidence confirms that legal protection of bird species does work. A recent study focusing in Eastern Europe shows that the rate of decline of protected species was approximately halved after the onset of protection.
