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.
While the Imperial Eagles and Saker Falcons winter, we work to improve the breeding conditions.
Imperial Eagle is very shy bird and their nests are set high in the trees, hidden before your eyes. That is the reasons, however, that the nests are usually thrown by the wind. In the project LIFE Energy we have been installing suitable specially adapted artificial nests (40 pcs), which look like an eagle's nest. We place them in nesting territories and believe that Eagles will use them already this season.
Saker Falcon, like all falcons do not build their own nests and use the nests of other species. The population of Saker Falcon in Slovakia almost extinct in the 90s of the last century. Today is dependent on our help during the breeding season. Therefore we install in the project 55 aluminum boxes on poles where the falcons nest.
