The publication of European Bird Populations: Estimates and Trends means that, for the first time, all pan-European data on bird populations and their distribution are available in one book. The information provided acts as a supplement to information given in two previous Birdlife International publications: Birds in Europe: Their Conservation Status and The EBCC Atlas of European Breeding Birds: Their Distribution and Abundance. Full population data is presented on all 515 regularly occurring species in Europe with line illustrations for each species. Information on population trend and range trend data is provided, along with status threat summaries and population size estimates for each species.
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.
