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.
For the past two years CZIP (Birdlife in Montenegro) has been fighting a battle against the conversion of Ulcinj Salinas into a tourist-development complex.

Unfortunately, it has become home to many invasive alien species that continue to infect the area and damage endemic wildlife at an incredible rate of one per year.
BirdLife’s UK Partner, the RSPB, is launching a new initiative, the RSPB Centre for Conservation Science dedicated to discovering solutions to 21st century conservation problems, reinforcing the BirdLife Partnership as a world leader in conservation.
