The Great Bustard, on the threshold of conservation

Six years ago, we couldn’t have imagined making a partnership with the City Hall of Salonta (Bihor, Romania) for the conservation of the Great Bustard. Not to mention on the municipality’s own initiative! Nonetheless, this is exactly what happened. We are thrilled that the project „Conservation, protection and promotion of natural values in the Salonta-Békéscsaba cross-border area (ROHU-14) – The Nature Corner” has seen the light. At last, we have the opportunity to attend to this species just like we wished for many years ago and just like it deserves to.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Great Bustard (Otis tarda) is a globally vulnerable species, already extinct in many European countries where it used to be native. In Romania, the species knew a massive decline starting with the 1920s. Thus, in the last few years, one could see great bustards in Romania only in the Western Plains. Continue reading

Dobrogea – a globally significant bird migration corridor

Monitoring soaring bird (raptors, storks, pelicans) migration has always been one of the flagship activities of Milvus Group. Using an extensive data set collected between 2002-2007 and 2010 – 2011 from Dobrogea, we now bring scientific evidence that Dobrogea (region in southeastern Romania) is a major migration corridor for large-sized soaring birds during the autumn migration season. In our latest article published in ARDEA, the official scientific journal of the Netherlands Ornithologists’ Union since 1912, we provide the most comprehensive overview to date of the autumn passage of soaring birds over Dobrogea, describing species composition, species-specific migration intensity and phenology, and the main geographical routes of migrating soaring birds over the area. Check out the paper HERE.
