Surveys of protected species in Vas, Zala and Somogy.

Topic : Protecting the environment, Biodiversity

Budget : CHF 1'009'155

Project phase : Phase 1

Description : When the Natura 2000 sites in the counties Vas, Zala and Somogy were designated, several species have not been surveyed at all or just incompletely. This project fills this gap by surveying 90 data-deficient species (amphibians, reptiles, bats, butterflies, dragonflies, xilophag insects). Based on this data, protection measures are proposed which will contribute to the conservation of the Natura 2000 sites.

Background : The first country report on the implementation of Natura 2000 highlights that the conservation status of certain water-related and forest habitats / species is unfavorable or bad in Hungary. The report further states that several species of community interest are data deficient. When designating the Natura 2000 sites in the three counties Vas, Zala and Somogy, several species have not been surveyed at all or just incompletely. Data necessary to decide on the correct conservation measures is lacking.

Hungarian registration number: SH 4/12

Objectives : The conservation status of the Natura 2000 sites of the counties Vas, Zala and Somogy is improved in coherence with European and Hungarian regulations. For this purpose, newly drafted management suggestions lay a sound basis for an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable management of these Natura 2000 areas.
