Project LIFE Energy as implemented in thirteen SPAs (Special Protection Areas) in the period of 1st September 2014 - 31st December 2019 and was aimed at protecting the ten priority bird species. Project pages are currently updated only on an occasional basis.
The installation of flight diverters has not been implemented by VSD. At the planned section ID33 Sirník, despite the increased effort (3rd installment deadline), it was not possible to get to the power lines with heavy machinery because of the difficult accessibility of the terrain and the protection of agricultural crops from destruction. On the side of ZSD, the installation of elements on 22 kV lines was realized in the project area Záhorské Pomoravie.
We have controlled the planting of trees - the state of the trees and the care.
All power lines treated by flight diverters are regularly controlled by monitoring of the effectiveness in terms of the D1 activity manual, findings are updated in the database. Coordination of the monitoring with the State Nature Conservancy, which employees also realise monitoring, continued.
There is an active monitoring of the occupancy of the artificial nests and nests boxes - the control of the Imperial Eagle and the Saker Falcon in the project areas.
Sousliks - monitoring, targeting of active holes continues in both localities. There are approximately 100 individuals in Gemerska Hôrka, the colony shifts, and we continue to manage the situation. 22.7. two rehabilitated sousliks were released at the site. The were found exhausted during heavy rains and floods. At the second project site, in Hrhov, the abundance increased to about 500 individuals and the originally separated colonies were definitely able to connect by the management of the areas. Both areas are intensively fed.
The exhibition in now located in the vestibule of the Faculty of Chemistry and Technology at STU in Bratislava city center, where it is open to public.
