1st Eagle Day in the Jászság Eagle Centre – January 17th, 2015

The Hungarian Ornithological Society (MME) and the Hortobágyi National Park Directorate along with the Jászberény ZOO are organizing the 1st Eagle Day with the intention of establishing a tradition. The main aim of the event is to draw people’s attention to how rich Hungary is in raptors, and to the conservation of the Imperial Eagle.

Following eagles in the Balkans

We had two main aims when we visited the countries of the Western Balkans. On the one hand, we intended to establish contacts there with conservationists to have a better picture about the significance of poisoning in these areas, so that we can calculate the probability of Imperial Eagles getting into trouble by this threat, and on the other hand, we helped wrapping up the Moustached Warbler expeditions organized by the Izsáki Bird Observatory and the Kiskunsági Bird Conservation Organization in the past twelve years.

Numbers of nest guarding volunteers rose continuously in the past three years

One of the main goals of HELICON LIFE+ project running from 2012 through 2016 is to reduce bird crime targeting birds of prey species (poisoning, shooting, nest robbing). Egg collecting and taking chicks from nests have been considered gone, however, much to our surprise, these forms of crime occur, every year.
