A new study has identified suitable habitat in the Netherlands and Flanders that could support at least 250 breeding pairs of Dalmatian pelicans once again. The findings highlight the growing potential for a reintroduction after an absence of over 500 years.

17 pelicans died in a month near the Bourgas lakes as a result of collisions with power lines. The current study on the impact of high-voltage power lines is being carried out within the project “Pelican way of LIFE”.
Coordinated by Rewilding Europe, the “Pelican way of LIFE” project formally kicked off in Bucharest on November 20. Its pan-European, multi-partner efforts will hopefully boost populations of this important and iconic bird.
