LIFE13 NAT/GR/000909 Conservation measures to assist the adaptation of Falco eleonorae* to climate change

The Eleonora’s Falcon (Falco eleonorae*) is one of the most important bird species in Greece as the country and particularly the islands of the Aegean Sea host >85% of its global breeding population. This project aims to facilitate Falco eleonorae adaptation to the ongoing and future climate change by the implementation of a series of conservation actions. The project objectives aim to the improvement of the species’ breeding performance and improvement of the species’ conservation status at its foraging areas both within its breeding and wintering range.
