When our LIFE project ends, the continuity of the activities shall be ensured by the Network for the Conservation of Aquila pomarina in Romania, made up of volunteers who participated at the theoretical and practical training sessions organised by our project.

The network volunteers must ensure the monitoring of the measures implemented by the project both during and after the project. In the following years, the 35 network volunteers will take part, together with the project partners, in the implementation of activities such as the identification of Aquila pomarina nests, the marking of protection perimeters around the nests, the inspection of the medium voltage poles insulated by our project and respectively the monitoring of the species.

As autumn rolls around and the Lesser Spotted Eagle (Aquila pomarina) sets off on its yearly migration down to its winter quarters in Central and Southern Africa, we can look back on what has been a successful year for the Life Pomarina Conservation Project. Jointly implemented by Milvus Group, The Environmental Protection Agency Sibiu and the Romanian Ornithological Society, the project aims to ensure conditions to achieve and maintain favorable conservation status for the eagles across three Special Protection Areas (SPA) in Transylvania. Of these sites, Milvus Group is directly responsible for two: Dealurile Târnavelor – Valea Nirajului and Podişul Hârtibaciului. Increasingly endangered across the world, the Transylvanian Carpathians are one of the most important strongholds of the Lesser Spotted Eagle, with a population of between 2000 and 2300 pairs – over 22% of the total European Union population of the bird and 10% of the global population. Early each spring the eagles arrive to begin their breeding cycle, a fragile process with a naturally low success rate of between 0.25 and 0.6 fledglings per breeding pair. This is further encumbered by disturbances to their habitats, whether through forestry, intrusive agriculture or disproportionate competition from more resilient raptor species.

At the end of 4 years of activities in support of the conservation of the Aquila pomarina species, the partners of the LIFE project “Conservation of Aquila pomarina in Romania” (Environmental Protection Agency Sibiu, Milvus Group Association and Romanian Ornithological Society), are organizing a final conference, aiming to gather bird experts from at least 10 European countries to share their experience related to the conservation of the species. The main objectives of the conference are:

  • to update the International Action Plan for the species, drafted in 1997

  • to disseminate the results achieved by our project

  • to share information on the conservation measures recently undertaken for the species in the different countries.

  • to meet with the teams of other Life Nature projects focusing on raptor species

The nest of Benjamin and his pair, situated near the village of Alţâna (Natura 2000 site Podișul Hârtibaciului) was known to the specialists from the beginning of the project. In 2010 the male was equipped with a satellite transmitter (and also name Benjamin on this occasion) which allowed us to monitor it for several years. In the spring on 2012 we designated a protection area of 100 meters in diameter around its nest and marked it with warning plates placed on trees. For better protection, we also notified the employees of the Dealul Sibiului private Forestry Office which manages the land in question of the exact location of the nest. In spite of all these measures, at the end of the 2012 summer the members of the Milvus team noticed that forestry works were started in the area. The project team reminded the forestry office of the existence of the protection area around the nest and the works ceased, which allowed a successful nesting process in 2012. However later in autumn the project team discovered that the tree where Benjamin had nested had been cut down. The forestry office had had these works included in their activities.
