During June, waterbirds belonging to protected species were discovered dead on three occasions, due to collision with power lines inside the protected area of the Mesolonghi Lagoon National Park, western Greece.
The Green Fund with its Board Decision No. 181.1/2020/27.05.2020 co-finances the LIFE18 ΝΑΤ/NL/000716 – “Pelican Way of LIFE” Project for year 2020 with the total amount of €12,000 for the implementation of the Hellenic Ornithological Society / BirdLife Greece actions.
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.
