The organization Raptor Protection of Slovakia (RPS) in cooperation with the State Nature Protection of the Slovak Republic christened on 17th September 2015 Ferrari special tractor to assist in the rescue of suslik colonies. Suslik belongs to the rare species, due to frequent changes in management of agriculture and destruction of pastures disappeared from our country. The tractor was christened at the site Biele Vody in National park Muránska planina, where the suslik prosper due to donkeys who graze the grass and create a suitable environment for them. Special machine- tractor Ferrari will help in restoration of two colonies in SPA Slovak Karst, which are now overgrown and there is not suitable place to live for them yet.
