The new website for the Austrian Great Bustard LIFE+ project is now live at: http://www.grosstrappe.at/indexe.html
The website provides information about the Austrian Great Bustard LIFE+ project which continues on the previous LIFE+ project which ran from 2004 – 2010.
From the website:
The main aim of the LIFE+ Project is the continuation of the successful concept of the LIFE Project “Great Bustard“ in Austria until 2015 in all of the four important Great Bustard areas in Austria.
As in two project areas the main mortality factor and therefore the main population threat have widely been removed (transfer of power lines below the soil and marking of power lines, respectively), further necessary transfer of power lines below the soil and marking should take place, particularly in the project area Sandboden and Praterterrasse. This should contribute to a further long-term increase of the Austrian and the whole cross-border West-Pannonian Great Bustard population, respectively.
